Sources privy to the development relayed the ruling PTI has green-lighted his induction in the Punjab cabinet.
They said he will be sworn in as a senior provincial minister.
Aleem Khan was released from Kot Lakhpat jail last year in May following bail granted by the Lahore High Court in the NAB case. He stepped down from the minister’s position after the corruption watchdog arrested him.
He remained in the custody of the bureau from Feb 7 to March 5 and then was sent to jail on judicial remand. He remained incarcerated for 73 days and was finally granted post-arrest bail by the high court on May 17.
NAB had accused Aleem Khan of being involved in acts of corruption and corrupt practices by way of accumulating assets beyond known sources of income within Pakistan and outside.
