PESHAWAR: A Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) commander of the Hakimullah Mehsud group surrendered to the security forces, sources privy to the developments told The Express Tribune on Monday.

The commander, Asad Mansoor, turned himself in to security forces in Dera Ismail Khan District, sources said. A security official confirmed the development and added that the commander had surrendered to the security forces some three weeks back.

However, details of his surrender still remained unclear.

The name of the surrendered commander resembles that of the spokesperson of the TTP’s breakaway faction Jamatul Ahrar, Asad Mansoor, but he has sent an email sent to media outlets denying that he had laid down arms.
