NEW DELHI (Sputnik) – Killed Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour used what appeared to be valid documents to travel to Dubai 19 times and visit Iran twice before being struck by a drone returning from his third trip, the Pakistani press reported Tuesday.
"Wali had a Pakistani passport and was travelling on it with a valid visa of Iran and Dubai," a senior investigative agency official told Pakistan’s Dawn daily.
The official said the ID card was issued to Wali in 2002 and renewed 10 years after expiry, whereas the passport was issued twice in 2006 and 2011 after the first expired. He reportedly traveled to Iran in February and March this year through the Taftan border town. His final trip before returning to Pakistan was on April 25.
Sources said no relative has thus far claimed the charred body brought to the Combined Military Hospital in Quetta.
The outlet added that a DNA sample collected from the corpse would be tested in Islamabad, noting that Quetta lacks the relevant capabilities.
