PESHAWAR: A former regional director of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Peshawar on Tuesday. Abdul Latif, who was also a professor at Qurtaba University, had went to Phase 7, Hayatabad to meet his relatives when assailants on a motorcycle shot him dead, police said. Tatara SHO Abid Afridi said Latif, 61, had retired as a regional director from the ISI three years ago.

During his career, Latif served on key positions, including as the first secretary in Pakistan’s embassy in Afghanistan in the 90s, he added. “He was a resident of Tehkal but was on a visit to Hayatabad to meet his relatives when unknown attackers riding a motorcycle opened fire at him just outside the house, killing him on the spot,” SHO Afridi said. SP Cantt Kashif Zulfiqar said the deceased was recently appointed as the dean of a university in Afghanistan and was to join the varsity in the coming days. “It looks like a targeted killing,” he added.
