A former commander of the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan, Fazal Saeed Haqqani, was killed by his own bodyguard on Thursday in the Sara-i-Gorgha area of Lower Kurram Agency, said security sources.
Security sources claimed that Idrees, a personal security guard of Haqqani, killed the commander and another guard.
They added that Idrees was associated with Haqqani for the past three years.
Haqqani, once considered a highly active commander of the TTP, had formed his own faction after a split emerged in the TTP.
The former head of TTP in the Kurram tribal region had accused TTP’s top leadership of killing his commanders and innocent people, and also accused them of being involved in kidnapping for ransom. He was said to be involved in various terrorists attacks in Upper and Lower Kurram agencies.—Agencies
