The Pakistani police has filed a case against the US for a drone strike that targeted the Taliban supreme leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor late last month.

According to the local media reports, the case was registered on the complaint of brother of a taxi driver who was driving Mullah Mansoor.

The authorities in Pakistan on Sunday said DNA report have confirmed that the man killed in a US drone strike was the Taliban supreme leader.

The country’s interior ministry said the confirmation was made following the DNA matching of DNA samples collected from the charred body against the relative who came forward to claim the remains. -KP
