New Delhi: A Pakistani fugitive militant was killed along with two of his associates in a bomb blast in Afghanistan. He had a bounty of 30 3 million (about 200 million Indian rupees). An Afghan official gave the information on Friday.
Commander Mangal Bagh was the leader of the banned terrorist group Lashkar-e-Islam. The group targeted Pakistani troops in the northwestern part of the country bordering Afghanistan in the 2010s. At that time, the Pakistani army carried out a major operation in the area.
Bagh was killed on Thursday in Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar province. The governor of the province, Jiul Haq Amarkil, shared information about his death on Twitter. Amarkhail did not say which organization carried out the bombing, but said the militant commander was involved in the attack in Afghanistan.
The USA announced the prize on the garden in 2018. Bagh and his group had a strong presence there in the Tirah Valley of northwest Pakistan until the Pakistani army carried out a major operation.
