According to an order issued by the Jammu and Kashmir general administration department, Khan, a retired Indian Administrative Service officer of 2000 batch, was relieved of the charge following a communication from the Union ministry of home affairs.

His removal from the post came all of a sudden and the reasons behind it were not immediately known.

Khan was made an advisor in March last year when G C Murmu was the Lt Governor, and he continued in the post under Murmu's successor Manoj Sinha.

Prior to his appointment as an advisor, Khan was the Divisional Commissioner of Kashmir.
