Earlier on 27th November, Naseem resigned from his designation to represent Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s extension case in the Supreme Court.
The move came after on Tuesday, when the Supreme Court suspended the extension of the army chief.
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.
