Tahir Ashrafi claims Taliban wants probe for prisoners through judiciary

Taliban Talks

ISLAMABAD – The chief of his own Ulema Council, Maulana Tahir Asharfi said that federal government should form a judicial commission to probe into the matter of outlawed Taliban’s non-combatant prisoners as militants themselves want the same. 

Ashrafi said that Taliban had made the suggestion during their first meeting with government negotiators in tribal areas last week. He said he urged the government from the platform of Pakistan Ulema Council to set up a judicial commission.

“This is one of the recommendations of Taliban that there should be a judicial commission on the issue of TTP prisoners,” Ashrafi added.

Earlier, the face of GeoTV network ‘Hamid Mir’ had also made a controversial claim while accepting his contacts with the outlawed militant organization.

Mir said that Ismatullah Shaheen was in contact with me before getting murdered in an attack. “Ismatullah Shaheen was preparing the list of non-combatant prisoners, mainly children and women. He shared the information with me upon which I asked that how would be ever prove that these women and children are in the custody of Pakistan security forces? Replying to my question, he (Ismatullah) said that in real these people are in custody of some private people who are keeping them in private jails of Sawat.”
