According to the ISPR -Not only DG ISPR has been transferred but also other senior ranked officers been transferred.  The newly-promoted Lt General, Ali Amir Awan, was posted as Inspector General Communication and Information Technology while Lt General Muhammad Saeed was appointed as National Defence University (NDU) president.

In other transfers, Lt General Sahir Shamshad Mirza, who was serving as Adjutant General at the GHQ, was appointed as chief of general staff (CGS), which is considered the most powerful position within the army hierarchy after post of the army chief. The CGS heads both the army’s operational and intelligence directorates. This position was earlier held by the current chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) General Nadeem Raza.

 Similarly, Lt Gen Muhammad Amir will now replace Lt General Sahir Shamshad Mirza as Adjutant General. Lt Gen Shaheen Mazhar Mehmood, who was previously commanding Peshawar Corps, has been appointed as Commander Mangla Corps, which is one of the strike formations of Pakistan Army.
