June 21, 2014
Pakistan has called on Afghan government to extradite the chief of Pakistani Taliban group Mullah Fazlullah who is believed to be hiding in Afghanistan. A renowned Pashtun leader, Mahmood Khan Achakzai, has reportedly sought the extradition of Mullah Fazlullah, during a meeting with President Hamid Karzai.
Achakzai has also urged President Karzai to dismantle Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP’s) hideouts in eastern Kunar and Nuristan provinces.The request was made during a meeting with President Hamid Karzai in capital Kabul which was also participated by Pakistan’s foreign secretary Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry. Pakistan had compelling evidence suggesting that Mullah Fazlullah and other TTP commanders were enjoying “patronage” of Afghanistan’s intelligence agency.
