It emerged on Tuesday that both security officials, as well as the proscribed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), had refuted the erroneous reports that more than 100 TTP prisoners had been released amid peace talks between the two sides. The remarks came after the media reports that the government had released over 100 TTP prisoners as a cordial gesture after the ceasefire announced by the militant group.
TTP spokesperson Mohammad Khorasani disclosed, “Media reports about the release of 100 TTP’s prisoners are not true. However, the TTP fully honours the ceasefire agreement”.
