Asif Nawaz Janjua

General Asif Nawaz Janjua NI(M), HI(M), SBt, psc, (Urdu:  ; 3 January 1937 – 8 January 1993) was a senior officer of the Pakistan Army who served as the fourth chief of army staff from 16 August 1991 until his death from arsenic poisoning. His family commissioned a private test on hair from his brush, which was conducted in the United States. The test registered high levels of arsenic. As a result, his body was exhumed, and an autopsy was conducted by French, British, and American doctors. The cause of death was determined to be a heart attack, which can also be caused by exposure to low or mild levels of arsenic. Benazir Bhutto also believed he was murdered by political opponents, namely Nawaz Sharif.

His tenure is regarded as having stabilised the civilian control of the Pakistani military. He is one of the four armed forces chiefs who had died while in active service, the others being Admiral Hasan Hafeez Ahmed in 1975, General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq in 1988, and Air Chief Marshal Mushaf Ali Mir in 2002.
