The COAS was scheduled to retire on 29th November 2019 but the premier Imran Khan extended his services for another three years which today has been turned down by the supreme court.
General Bajwa was appointed to lead the military in 2016, taking over from the massively popular General Raheel Sharif, who won the hearts of millions with his blistering fight against terrorism.
