5 facts about killer of our children Ehsanullah Ehsan every Pakistani should never forget
Ehsanullah is also the prime accused in the 2014 APS Peshawar attack.
Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP) spokesperson Ehsanullah Ehsan allegedly ran away from Army’s custody. In an audio recording which he recently released, Ehsan claimed that he escaped from the military jail on January 11, 2020.
“I am Ehsanullah Ehsan. I am the former spokesman of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan and Jamaatul Ahrar. I had surrendered to the Pakistani security authorities on February 5, 2017, under an agreement. I honored this agreement for three years, but the Pakistani authorities violated it and kept me in a prison along with my children,” he claimed in the audio message.
He claimed that he has broken out of jail and is currently in Turkey. He said that he struck a deal with agencies in Pakistan, but he was deceived by them. Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) have refrained from commenting on the matter until now.
The news of his escape has sparked fear and anger among people. Ehsan, who has a $1 billion bounty on his head and is known for his affiliation with TTP in Pakistan, is the prime accused in major terror attacks in Pakistan.
