IHC rules on petition made against appointment of DG IB

Sept 3, 2021: The petition against the appointment of DG Intelligence Bureau Dr. Suleiman Khan was rejected in an IHC ruling.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has dismissed the petition made against the appointment as inadmissible. Chief Justice of the IHC Atharmanullah remarked that the courts should do their job and could not interfere in the work of the executives. He said the petitioner had no right to make a claim against the appointment of the DG IB and in no way was the petitioner affected by the appointment.

Former IB officer M Jamil Qureshi had challenged the appointment of DG IB Dr Suleiman Khan in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) and said that his appointment should be declared null and void by the Rules of Business 1973. Qureshi petitioned the IHC that since Dr. Suleiman’s appointment was against the Rules of Business 1973, he should be removed from the post of DG.

In May 2018, the federal government appointed Dr. Muhammad Suleiman Khan as the head of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) of the Civil Intelligence Agency. Dr. Muhammad Suleiman had earlier held the post of Joint Director General in IB. He was promoted from Grade 21 to 22 and appointed as Director General IB.
