Former Pak Air Force man heads fidayeen unit to free jailed militants
Rasheed also said in the video that the new unit will take "revenge" against police and intelligence personnel, jail wardens, officers and others who harass jailed militants or their families.
"We also warn Pakistani security forces and intelligence agencies against harassing the families of jihadi prisoners," he added.
Rasheed, who belongs to Chota Lahor village of Swabi district in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, joined the PAF in 1997.
He was arrested for his role in an attempt on Musharraf's life on December 14, 2003.
He was given the death sentence by a military court on October 3, 2005 along with six other air force personnel.
Despite his conviction, Rasheed was shifted from Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi to the Central Jail in Bannu for "inexplicable reasons", the report said.
Rasheed was also allowed to marry in jail in 2010 and become the father of a daughter.
Several journalists in Peshawar received SMS messages from Rasheed. Several interviews of Rasheed were uploaded on Facebook.
In a video issued after his escape, he confessed to his role in the attempt on Musharraf's life.
