Lieutenant General Nadeem Anjum, who is the head of Pakistan’s intelligence agency called ISI, has been given more time to work in his role.
This decision was confirmed by an official source to The News and it ends the rumors about whether he would continue in his job.
This approval to extend his service was given on September 14th. Before this, another intelligence chief named Fuad Asadullah was allowed to stay in his position by the former prime minister, Shehbaz Sharif, for three more years, just before he was supposed to retire.
Nadeem Anjum took over as the head of ISI on November 20, 2021, after the previous leader, Faiz Hameed, was moved to a different position.
Nadeem has had important roles in various parts of Pakistan, including the tribal areas, Balochistan, and along the Line of Control. He also received education and training in the United Kingdom and the United States.
One interesting thing to note is that Nadeem prefers to keep a low profile and doesn’t like his pictures to be shared. However, he became the first ISI chief to hold a press conference.
