KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon has released another key Talibaninfo-icon leader Mullahinfo-icon Abdul Samad Sani-- in charge of the group’s insurgency, a well-placed source said on Monday.

Sani was captured by Pakistani security forces two years back soon after Taliban’s supreme leader Mullah Mansour was killed in a drone strike in Balochistan province of Pakistan.

A source close to the Taliban said Mullah Sani was released on Monday by Pakistani authorities and reunited with his family in Quetta, Balochistan’s capital city.

During the Taliban’s regime, Sani served as head of the Kandahar Bank and police chief of Kandahar province.

During the Jihadinfo-icon against the former Soviet Union, Sani served in Maulviinfo-icon Mohammad Nabi and Maulvi Khalis parties.

He was serving as financial in-charge of the Taliban movement when he was captured by Pakistani forces as per the US demand.

The Taliban have not yet commented about Sani’s release.

Pakistan recently freed some Taliban leaders, including Taliban’s co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar.
