Peshawar: Ashiqullah Mehsud, who was considered to be a chief commander of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan and master in suicide bombing, was knocked off in North Waziristan today.
According to the officials and sources verified that he was the major commander of the TTP and was taken as expert in suicide bombings later to Qari Hussain Mehsud who was the pioneer of suicide bomb.
The late commander was sitting along with some of other TTP comrades when he was attacked by unknown armed men.
In the light of the contention between Shehryar Mehsud and Khan Said Sajna outfits, the intelligence sources surmise as the latter also cut off from the basic group.
TTP issued no statement on the incident, besides; the above mentioned groups are also silent about the attack.
Ashiqullah was supposed to be next-in-line of Qari Hussain and the master of preparing suicide bombers within Taliban.
