Pakistan announced that after confirmation of his identity, the body of Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour, who was killed in a U.S airstrike, has been sent to Afghanistan for burial.

According to Dawn, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said that the body was handed over to a close relative of Mansour after their relationship was verified through a DNA test.

The interior minister firmly rejected criticism of the delay in confirming Mullah Mansour’s identity and stated that that DNA testing took time.

He also revealed that Ghulam Mohammad Bugti, a former district registration officer from Qila Saifullah, had been arrested for issuing Mansour’s first identity card in 2002.

An official from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) who tried to secure Pakistani citizenship for Mansour’s second wife and children in 2011 had also been arrested, he said. (ANI)
