Supreme Court of Pakistan clarified that it had not taken suo-motu notice and media misunderstood the whole scenario.

“We are hearing the case on the petition filed by Raiz Riahi”, said the top judge.

Earlier on August 19, Prime Minister Imran Khan had approved the extension of General Qamar Javed Bajwa as the Chief of Army Staff.

Back in August Prime Minister’s office issued a notification citing that, General Qamar Javed Bajwa is appointed Chief of Army Staff for another term of three years from the date of completion of current tenure.
