The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on Saturday released a video showing the killing of former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) officer Colonel Imam. Sultan Amir Tarar, better known as Col Imam, was reportedly killed last month by the Taliban. The video footage released today shows Colonel Imam on the ground with three Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) members, including the group’s chief Hakimullah Mehsud, standing behind him. Earlier, TTP spokesman Ahsanullah Ahsan was quoted as saying that a video showing Col Imam would be released later in the day. “The video will show Taliban fighters firing at Colonel Imam… Colonel Imam is no more in this world,” Ahsan said.
