Pakistan`s main civilian intelligence agency gets new chief
Islamabad: The police chief of Pakistan`s largest city of Karachi has been appointed as the new director general of Intelligence Bureau, the country`s main civilian intelligence agency.
Akhtar Hassan Khan Gorchani will replace Aftab Sultan as chief of the Intelligence Bureau.
A formal notification was issued by the Establishment Division following Gorchani`s appointment yesterday by Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf.
The appointment followed a recent reshuffle of top federal bureaucrats.
Official sources said the changes were part of Ashraf`s efforts to bring in a new team of officials to replace those appointed by former Premier Yousuf Raza Gilani.
Gorchani belongs to a political family and his son, Athar Gorchani, is a provincial legislator who joined the ruling Pakistan People`s Party after being elected to the Punjab Assembly in 2008.
