Senior journalist Saleem Safi, who has interviewed Ehsanullah Ehsan, claimed on Wednesday that the former spokesman of the proscribed militant group, during the interview, divulged that the TTP commander and ISIS chief Umar Khalid Khorasani got medical treatment in India after sustaining injuries in one of the terror attacks in Afghanistan.
Saleem Safi maintained that the Indian involvement in fomenting terrorism in Pakistan is not a new phenomenon adding the terror attacks in Pakistan were made possible through collaboration between two neighbouring countries - India and Afghanistan.
In a confessional video released by ISPR, Ehsanullah Ehsan confessed he and his accomplices had links with Indian intelligence Agency, RAW.

“I have been a spokesperson for TTP Mohmand, TTP’s central division, and the Jamaat-ul-Ahrar,” he says. “I have played the role of a spokesperson and during my 9 years I saw a lot happening in TTP. They misguided dozens of people, especially the youth, into joining the organisation in the name of Islam.”
Ehsan further says, “They [the TTP leadership] got their [Indian] support, their funding and took money for every activity they did. They pushed the TTP soldiers on the frontlines to fight against the Pakistan Army and went into hiding themselves,” he added.
“When they started taking help from India and RAW, I told Umar Khalid Khorasani [TTP commander] that we’re supporting the kuffar [non-believers] and helping them kill our own people in our own country.”
“He [Khorasani] said, ‘Even if Israel agrees to fund me to spread terror in Pakistan, I will take their help’… At that point, I had figured out that the TTP leadership was functioning to serve its own self-interest and agendas,” Ehsan upheld.
“A particular group misled the innocent, kidnapped them and extorted them for money,” he said.
“The same group is responsible for bombings at various places; schools, colleges and university. This is against the teachings of Islam,” the TTP-JA spokesperson can be heard saying.
Ehsan further reveals Mullah Fazlullah became TTP leader through a lucky draw. “The fight for leadership intensified when operations began in Waziristan. When everybody in the organisation began fighting for leadership, the committee decided to have a lucky draw. Mullah Fazlullah became the leader via lucky draw,” he says.
“What can you expect from such organisations in which leaders are selected through the process of a lucky draw?”
Further, Ehsan continues, “The fight for leadership intensified after Hakimullah’s death. Everyone wanted to become the leader. After Hakimullah was killed, a new succession struggle began.”
