New Delhi, Feb 27: Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi's cousin and Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan's uncle Major General Isfandiyar Ali Khan Pataudi is among the competitors in the race to head Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).

He is currently serving as the Deputy DG, ISI, that he took over in 2011.

According to the media reports, the Pakistan government has to take a decision against an extension of the current DG-ISI Lt General Ahmad Shuja Pasha, who came in power in 2008. The government had already given a one-year extension to Pasha last year.

Pasha will now head the critical strategic plans division that controls Pakistan's nuclear weapons, as reported in news. Others in the race include Lt Gen Javed Iqbal, Zaheerul Islam, Rashid Mehmood, Mohammad Asif, and Major Gen Naushad Kayani.
