Forces nab key Taliban leader in Peshawar
PESHAWAR: The Security Forces kept the recent trend of capturing top militants going Monday when they arrested a key Taliban commander, Iliyas, also known as Usman, from the Bakhsho Pul area of the NWFP capital.
According to DawnNews reports, the security forces apprehended Usman during a raid near Charsadda Road. Usman is accused of running a parallel court in the Pundyali Tehsil of the Mohmand Agency.
The arrest of Usman would hit the morale of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan in Pundyali, which is considered as the strong hold of the militants operating in Mohmand Agency.
