Ex-Afghan Taliban chief's properties seized in Pakistan

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Islamabad, May 8, IRNA -- A Pakistani anti-terrorism court has seized five properties of former Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour, who was killed in a US drone strike in Balochistan in 2016, local media reported.

The properties including plots and houses worth US $ 201,000 purchased by ex-Taliban chief in Karachi by using fake identities have been taken over by the anti-terrorism court for auction.

This revelation came in a report submitted by the Federal Investigation Agency to the ATC-II in July last year regarding an investigation into a case related to alleged fundraising by the slain Afghan Taliban leader and his accomplices through the purchase of properties on the back of forged identities.

Since January, the court had been directing the investigation officer (IO) to complete the process of attachment of Mullah Mansour's properties and proclamation of his two alleged absconding accomplices – Akhtar Mohammad and Amaar – under sections 87 and 88 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

The court had already called for reports from the commissioners of Peshawar and Quetta regarding the process of proclamation of Mullah Mansour's alleged absconding accomplices and attachment of their properties.
