An official source has verified to The News that Director General (DG) Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant General Nadeem Anjum got an extension in service.
The summary of the extension was accepted on late Thursday night, September 14. Earlier, former Prime Minister Shehbaz Shaif granted an extension of three years to Director General (DG) of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) Fuad Asadullah before his retirement.
On November 20, 2021, Nadeem Anjum took over as DG ISI from General Faiz Hameed. Nadeem Anjum had previously served as the commander of the Karachi Corps since being elevated to the rank of three-star general in September 2019.
Other than that, he is the first ISI chief to have to address a press conference.
