ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has accepted resignation of Pakistan Telecommunication Mobile Limited Board of Directors member Shabir Khan, husband of Minister of State for Information Technology and Telecom Anusha Rehman.

The resignation comes two days after Daily The News and Daily Jang reported that Khan has been appointed at the time when the country is about to hold the mega auction of US$2.5 billion 3G and 4G spectrum.

The news reported on March 31 that Khan has been appointed as a member of the Board of Directors of a leading cellular company, which is jointly owned, by the government and a private group.

The News senior reporter Ahmed Noorani reported that Shabir Ahmed Khan had also made an international trip after his appointment.

Anusha Rehman didn’t receive the call from the reporter when he tried to discuss the matter.
