Slain Taliban Leader Mullah Mansour Had Bought ‘Life Insurance’ In Karachi
Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour, who was killed in a US drone strike in 2016, had bought a ‘life insurance’ policy from a private company in Pakistan after faking his identity. This information was revealed during hearing of a terror funding case against him and his fleeing accomplices.
An anti terrorism court in Karachi was informed of Mansour’s shenanigans by the said insurance company during the hearing of a case filed against Mansour and his accomplices by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
The Taliban commander and his partners used to gather funds for carrying out terror attacks by buying properties through fake identities. He allegedly brought five properties worth Rs32 million in Karachi.
Dawn quoted sources as saying that an investigating officer and a staffer of the said insurance company appeared before the court and submitted a report from the company. The report claimed that Mullah Akhtar Mansour had bought a ‘life insurance’ policy by making use of a fake identity. The company was paid up to Rs300,000 for this purpose before he died in a US drone strike on May 21, 2016.
