TTP spokesperson Asad Mansoor surrenders to security forces

Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP) spokesperson Asad Mansoor, surrendered himself to Pakistan’s security forces, officials confirmed.
According to the officials, Mansoor had handed himself to Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) in Dera Ismail Khan, three weeks ago.
The details of his surrender still remained murky but officials said that it was “the result of much hard work”.
Last year in April, key commander of JuA Ehsanullah Ehsan also turned himself in to security forces. Earlier the same month, ISPR had announced the surrender of eight JuA militants.
In a subsequent video confession, Ehsan publicly admitted that Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security (NDS) and India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) are funding and helping the TTP and its affiliates carry out terrorist attacks in Pakistan.
“Ehsanullah Ehsan’s confessional video was aimed at exposing the enemy designs against Pakistan before the ordinary citizens,” Director General Inter-services Public Relations (ISPR) Major Gen Asif Ghafoor said during a press briefing.
