10 September, 2012
WANA: An important commander of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has been reported killed during clashes with security forces in the Zarmelan village of South Waziristan Agency (SWA).
Sources said on Sunday that, eight days back, a key commander of TTP, Aftab Khan Mehsud, was killed during clashes between security forces and TTP fighters in Zarmelan village of SWA. Official sources said that Aftab was the right-hand man of TTP chief Hakimullah Mehsud.
The report came out in the open some days after the incident because the rugged terrain of the region renders it inaccessible to the media.
