Before his death in a US drone attack in 2016, Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour had purchased a life insurance policy from a private company in Pakistan using a fake identity, it emerged at the hearing of a terror funding case against him and his absconding accomplices on Saturday.

The insurance company confirmed it to an anti-terrorism court in Karachi at the hearing of the case registered against him and his accomplices by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) last year.

It emerged during the investigation that the Taliban leader and his accomplices were involved in generating funds for terrorist activities through the purchase of properties on the basis of ‘forged identities’. He had purchased five properties including plots and houses, estimated to be valued at Rs32 million, in Karachi.
