Islamabad, April 1, IRNA
Pakistan-Taliban Commander
A ranking commander of Taliban militia has surrendered, serving a blow to the Taliban, though he was no more active in the resistance movement against the US-led foreign troops.

"The News" reported in its Friday issue that Abdul Wahid, commonly known as Raees-e-Baghran has laid down arms. There has been no comment from Taliban side as yet on the development, the daily noted.

The newspaper, however, made no mention as to when and where the Taliban commander laid down his arms.

Taliban regime in Afghanistan was toppled by the US-led forces, following the 9/11 events in the United States.
