Man responsible for shooting of Nobel Prize winner Malala escapes from prison in Pakistan

Ehsanullah Ehsan, the former Pakistan Taliban spokesman who had been accountable for the shooting of Malala Yousafzai in 2012 and carrying the mortal Peshawar Army school terror attack in 2014, has escaped from prison, according to a sound clip published by him.

In the sound clip, that surfaced social media on Thursday, Ehsan explained he escaped the confinement of Pakistani security bureaus on January 11, claiming Pakistani forces failed to keep their promises made to him throughout his surrender in 2017.

“With the support of God, I succeeded to escape January 11, 2020, in the confinement of their security forces,” he is heard saying in the clip.

It could be a large blow to Pakistan and its effort to eliminate the remnants of the Taliban if the clip has been demonstrated to be authentic.

Without revealing his present place, Ehsan reported he would earn a detailed statement concerning the days of his confinement in the coming days in addition to his plans.

Ehsan from the sound clip stated he surrendered to the Pakistani security agencies on February 5, 2017, beneath an arrangement however, the forces failed to keep their promise made before the surrender.

“I followed the arrangement for around three decades. However, these shrewd security associations put me along with my kids in breach of this arrangement,” he stated, adding that he eventually decided to flee out of the forces. The credibility of the sound and veracity of this Ehsan’s claim wasn’t confirmed by the security forces or the Pakistani authorities.
