'Ex-COAS Bajwa Asked Former CJP To Legalise Imran's Bani Gala Residence'
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif's Adviser Malik Ahmad Khan has claimed that PTI chief Imran Khan was the only individual who received an NRO from former Chief of Army Staff General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa.

Speaking to a private news channel on on Monday, Khan claimed that the former COAS had asked then-Chief Justice Saqib Nisar to regularise Imran Khan's palatial Bani Gala residence, adding he had "all the evidence to prove it".


The adviser added that disgruntled PTI leader Jahangir Khan Tareen, once Imran Khan's main financier and strategist, became a victim of the same "deal".

Imran wasn't willing to go along with Tareen's disqualification at first, but later agreed, considering it a "balancing act", the PM's adviser maintained.

Two days ago (24 December), the PTI chairman alleged that the former army chief had struck a deal with ex-president and PPP co-chair Asif Ali Zardari, and with Sindh chief minister Murad Ali Shah.

The former prime minister was also quoted as saying that during the past year, he had found out that General retired Bajwa did not want accountability.

Last week too, Imran had accused former COAS of controlling NAB and later 'granting an NRO-II' to the incumbent rulers.

“Eventually, [he] asked me to focus on economy and to move away from accountability,” former premier had reportedly said.
