Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour was killed in a U.S Drone Strike a few days before. Along with him, he was accompanied by an ‘innocent’ driver. The family of the driver killed had lodged a strong complaint with the police authorities to take action against the United States on international level.



Pakistan had several time referred Taliban as their one of the biggest enemy and urged the public to not to support the terrorist organisation. Mansour was reportedly entering in the Pakistan carrying a fake ID proof along with a fake name through Iran’s border. The driver, who was also killed in drone strike, was later identified as Mohammed Azam.

On complaint of Azam’s bother. Pakistani police filed a case on behalf of Azam’s family, police official Abdul Wakil Mengal said to news agencies. However, its not very much clear that family would get any justice or appeal in the real life but the initial report had been filled with the department.

On his counterpart, in the legal case documents and in the complaints given by him, his brother Mohammed Asim describes Azam as an “innocent man” and a father of four children who was the family’s sole breadwinner and seeks for ‘justice’ from the police.

“In our view, both the (officials) who ordered and those who executed the drone strike are responsible for (killing) a man who had nothing to do with terrorism, who was a non-combatant,” Azam’s uncle, Allah Nazar, told The Associated Press.

The whole family along with Nazar and Asim is targeting the U.S. department directly for killing an ‘innocent’. They had urged the United States to be kind enough to answer the main question about the survival of family after their only source of income’s dead end.

Nazar highlighted that the family was seeking some financial compensation for this loss from American and Pakistani authorities to support Azam’s family and fund his four children’s basic education.

Pakistan had once again condemned the U.S. drone strike, in the similar way as earlier, describing it as a violation of its sovereignty.Various countries including Afghanistan, USA and Pakistan had admitted the death of Taliban’s chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour after DNA test results.
