A former close aide to Taliban commander Mullah Dadullah who was killed last month by Afghan government and NATO forces has died "in custody" after he was accused of betraying his former comander, Taliban sources have told AKI.
"Takht Mohammed was for 14 years a companion of Mullah Dadullah but he turned out to be an informer who passed on the information to the Afghan government that allowed it to track down and kill Dadullah," the source, speaking on condition of anonymity told AKI.
"After Dadullah’s killing, Takht Mohammed fled to Kuchlak (in Pakistan near Quetta) from where he was recently abducted by the Taliban. He died of cardiac failure,” the source added.
