Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has sacked his information adviser, Ajmal Khan Wazir on a  reported ‘leaked video clip’ on Saturday. Mr. Wazir has been replaced by Kamran Bangash, the CM Mehmood Khan’s close aide.

The action has been taken under Section 3 of KP Advisers and Special Assistants to the Chief Minister (Appointment) Act, 1989. The reason behind Wazir’s removal is said to be a leaked audio clip and allegations that he received a commission from an advertising agency.

“Ajmal Wazir was removed after leaked audio [clip],” Bangash confirmed. “Some things have come to light regarding [Wazir] taking commissions from an advertising firm.”

Bangash said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had been informed of the matter and a forensic investigation will be held. He added that he will soon give the media a “detailed briefing” on the matter.

Additionally, a letter has also been written by the CM’s secretariat to the provincial chief secretary saying that KP chief minister has “desired to process a case for the fact-finding inquiry into the recently surfaced audiotape of Mr. Ajmal Khan Wazir.”
