Mullah Omar's son Yaqub reportedly killed, Taliban denied
According to him, Mullah Yaqub, who had hoped to succeed his father as leader of the Taliban, was killed while at a meeting in the city four days ago (Thursday).
"We were told about Mullah Omar's death two years back and now his son Mullah Yaqub who was 21 or 22 years old was trying to be appointed as his father's successor. But Mullah Mansour also tried to become leader of the Taliban, therefore it is said that he was killed some days back," Qadir claimed while talking to TOLOnews.
However Afghan Taliban’s spokesperson Mullah Hasan Rahmani denied and said it a baseless claim. He also said that he is in touch with Mullah Omar’s family and he had a conversation with Yaqub two days before.
