Security forces in Balochistan have killed a local Daesh (ISIS) commander during a raid in Mastung on Sunday.

Personnel of intelligence agencies, FC, and Counter-Terrorism Department of police took part in the three-hour-long raid carried out in grape orchards near Killi Mehrab in Mastung.

During the operation, Mumtaz Ahmad aka Pehalwan was killed in a gun battle.

Involved in high profile attacks

Mumtaz was known to be involved in killing Siraj Raeesani, the younger brother of former Balochistan chief minister Nawab Aslam Raeesani in a blast in July 2018. As many as 150 more people were killed in the explosion.

The Balochistan government had offered Rs2.5 million in bounty for arresting Mumtaz Ahmad dead or alive.

He was also believed to be behind the killing of 10 Hazara coal miners in Machh, dozens of attacks on security forces, sectarian targeted killings, and several bomb blasts.
