Taliban Swat, July 23 (ANI): The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP) Swat chapter chief Mullah Fazlullah is among the 50 terrorists declared absconders by a special anti-terrorism court in Swat.

The Special Court of Anti-Terrorism Judge Asim Imam also declared TTP’s spokesperson Muslim Khan, Naib Amir Maulana Shah Doran and other terrorists as absconders, and ordered them to appear in the court within seven days.

Cases against the absconders have been registered in different police stations over their involvement in terrorism and other severe crimes, The Nation reports.

Fazlullah, who has a five million rupee bounty on his head, is also known as ‘Radio Mullah’ as he used to preach ‘jihad’ and give sermons on an illegal local FM radio channel during the TTP’s paraller rule in the Swat Valley.

The sermons were usually aired at night.

Fazlullah used to announce the do’s and don’ts for the people of the region.

Names of violators of the Taliban’s stern ‘Islamic sharia’ were also announced on the radio along with the punishment, which often included beheading. (ANI)
