Pakistan’s interior minister confirms Ehsan’s escape

Pakistan’s interior minister confirms Ehsan’s escape

Feb 18, 2020 - 08:13

PESHWAR (Pajhwok): A cabinet minister gas confirmed the escape of former Tehreek-i-Talibaninfo-icon Pakistaninfo-icon (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan has escaped from the custody of security agencies.

Interior Minister Ijaz Shah told reporters in Islamabad he had read reports of the former TTP leader’s mysterious escape. "The news is true, it's true," he commented, saying the state was aware of the incident.

Asked if the state was doing anything about the matter, the minister replied: "A lot is being done. You will hear good news."

The ministerial remarks break 10 days of official silence over reports regarding the TTP spokesman's escape. Ehsan announced his escape in an audio clip released on social media.

Ehsan had surrendered to a Pakistani security agency under an agreement about three years ago. He fled during an operation to capture and target terrorists.
