    Lieutenant General Rizwan Akhtar named new ISI chief

    ISLAMABAD: Major General Rizwan Akhtar was named new Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief on Monday, after being promoted to Lieutenant General’s position, Express News reported.
    Akhtar had worked as DG Rangers Sindh in the past.
    The new chief will take charge once DG ISI Zaheerul Islam retires from his post.
    Five other major generals were also promoted to the position of lieutenant generals and their names are Hilal Hussain, Ghaiyoor Mehmood, Nazeer Butt, Naveed Mukhtar and Hidayat Rehman.
    The post of ISI chief is the second most important after that of the army chief. Further, the ISI chief is appointed by the prime minister on the recommendation of the army chief.
    The change in the top military brass comes at a time when the army has constantly been accused of involvement in the current political crisis as the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tehreek continue their sit-ins in Islamabad seeking to overthrow the incumbent Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government.
