KARACHI: A court in Karachi summoned on Wednesday alleged Taliban commander Fazal Mehsud, a day after releasing him on bail.
The Crime Investigation Department arrested Mehsud from the Kemari area in Karachi on Tuesday.
According to Senior Superintendent Police (SSP) CID Operations Fayyaz Khan, Mehsud was associated with the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan faction.
The alleged Taliban commander was a close associate of the head of Tehree-e-Taliban Pakistan Baitullah Mehsud and Commander Faiz Muhammad.
SSP Fayyaz Khan said that during the interrogation, the suspect revealed that Baitullah Mehsud had visited Karachi a few years ago for treatment.
He also claimed that Baitullah Mehsud stayed with him at his residence in Karachi.
The suspect is allegedly involved in fundraising for the TTP and other terrorist activities in Waziristan.
However, the court ordered his release from jail on Tuesday night due to lack of evidence against him.
