Islamabad: The Pakistani government has decided not to extend the tenure of Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha, a media report said.

Pasha, who has been the director general of the ISI for the last three-and-a-half years, will be transferred to the Strategic Plans Division (SPD) as its head, the daily Dawn reported citing sources late Saturday.

He was handed a one-year extension as chief of the country`s spy agency last March.

The government has not commented on the matter.

A source close to Pasha also said the ISI chief did not want an extension.

Sources claim that the government believes Pasha`s appointment to PSD will "help the future of Pakistan-US nuclear and strategic engagement".
