According to reports, talking to a TV channel, the TTP commander said that his men had kidnapped Vice Chancellor Kohat University Latifullah Kakakhel and had demanded release of their arrested accomplices and heavy ransom money in return for release of VC.

He said that the government had accepted their demand and had freed 50 militants after which Latif Kakakhel was freed.

However, Afridi said that the TTP was not involved in the kidnapping of Ajmal Khan, but they were informed that he was kidnapped by the Waziristan Taliban.
