Federal Minister Azam Khan Swati resigns from his post
*ISLAMABAD - *Federal Minister for Science and Technology Azam Khan Swati resigned on Thursday.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader is currently involved in a suo motu case pertaining to ‘illegal’ transfer of former Inspector-General Islamabad Jan Muhammad.
IGP Muhammad, a grade-20 officer of the Police Services of Pakistan (PSP), had been directed to report to the Establishment Division on October 27, apparently on the verbal order of Prime Minister Imran Khan on the complaint of the minister.
The Supreme Court had sought legal assistance from two lawyers for suggesting a possible course of action against Swati in view of a joint investigation team’s (JIT) damning reports highlighting his alleged misuse of authority.
