Former ISI chief Lt. Gen. Rizwan Akhtar announces premature retirement

RAWALPINDI: Former DG ISI Lt. Gen. Rizwan Akhtar announced that he would be retiring prematurely on Saturday, citing personal reasons for the decision. 

General Rizwan Akhtar had been serving as the President of the National Defence University. He has previously served as DG Rangers Sindh and DG ISI.

“It’s with a heavy heart but with great satisfaction, that I hang my uniform,” he was quoted as saying in a statement. “After close to 35 years of dedicated active commissioned service, it has been a matter of great pride and honour for me to have served this great army,” he added.

“I have requested for premature release due to some pressing personal commitments and want everyone knowing me, to respect my decision and not succumb or resort to speculation in any domain. I shall be available for any service in the Army whenever needed,” he added further.
