ISLAMABAD - Sahibzada Jahangir, a close friend of Prime Minister Imran Khan is likely to be appointed as Ambassador in the important World Capital.
Sahibzada is likely to be appointed as Pakistan’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom.
Pakistan envoy in UK, Sahebzada Ahmed Khan, has been told to report to the Foreign Office on misconduct charges, media reports said on Saturday.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has directed Sahebzada Ahmed Khan to report at the Foreign Office in Islamabad after an “irresponsible activity” at an awards ceremony.
I am dismayed by the actions of our High Commissioner to the UK and have asked him to return to Pakistan and provide an explanation for his behaviour at the IPPA awards held in London.

Sahebzada Ahmed Khan took charge in London as Pakistan’s High Commissioner around two months ago. He was reportedly involved in inappropriate actions during an awards show, which was attended by a large number of Pakistani celebrities.
The incident took place during a local media outlet’s event held at London’s O2 Arena on September 9, wherein the diplomat was called on stage to announce the winner of an award category. In a video clip that was shared on social media, the UK envoy’s actions raised concerns in the Foreign Office.
