Abdul Wali, also known as Omar Khalid Khurasani, a senior member of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, and three of his aides were killed in a roadside blast in Paktia province on Sunday.

According to reports, Khurasani had a bounty of $3 million on his head. While the Taliban government said that it will investigate the matter.  

“Our investigation has been continuing in this regard to see what is the issue. What incident happened and where it happened,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for Taliban government said.  

As per reports, Khalid Khurasani and his companions were killed in an explosion from an apparent roadside bomb when they were travelling in a car in Afghanistan’s southeastern province of Paktia on Sunday.

Meanwhile, some sources said that Khurasani was present in the negotiations which were reportedly held between the TTP and Pakistani government in Kabul. 

Sher Hassan Hassan, a political analyst expressed his views over Khurasani’s killing saying: “To gain money and weapons from the US, (Pakistan) should always declare an enemy and that enemy is now TTP. This is an enemy who could be controlled everywhere and they can eliminate it anywhere they want to.”
