Former general had submitted his resignation from the post of special assistant to the premier last month, in the wake of allegations levelled regarding his family’s assets. However, the premier had refused to accept his resignation at the time.
Meanwhile, Bajwa will continue to work as chairman of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Authority.
