Militants kidnap their former commander in Tirah
TIRAH: The activists of Lashkar-i-Islam kidnapped their former commander Ghuncha Gul along with four of his bodyguards. Mr Gul had recently parted ways with his chief Mangal Bagh. The LI activists accused him of providing information about the whereabouts of Mangal Bagh to the Americans.
Mangal Bagh had narrowly escaped on December 18 last year when his base in Tirah was targeted by a drone. At least 26 of his close associates were killed in two drone strikes, carried out on Dec 17 and 18.
The LI had in the first week of January killed Shala Baz, another of its important commander, in Tirah on similar charges.
