 Nobel Laureate Malala Yousfzai, who was shot at in 2012, asked the Pakistan military and Prime Minister Imran Khan to explain how her alleged shooter, Ehsanullah Ehsan, had escaped from government custody after he posted a tweet threatening a second attempt on her life.

Ehsan, a former spokesperson of terror outfit Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) who allegedly shot at Yousfzai and badly wounded her nine years ago, recently wrote on Twitter, “next time, there would be no mistake.” Taking note of the menacing post, Twitter on Wednesday permanently suspended his account.

Following the threat, Yousafzai, the youngest-ever Nobel Laureate, tweeted, “This is the ex-spokesperson of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan who claims responsibility for the attack on me and many innocent people. He is now threatening people on social media. How did he escape @OfficialDGISPR@ImranKhanPTI?”

Ehsan escaped from Pakistan jail in Jan 2020

Ehsan managed to escape from Pakistan’s jail on January 11 last year, provoking huge outrage in Pakistan with the opposition targeting the Imran Khan government of “sheer incompetence”.

In January 2020, Ehsan released an audio message in which he could be heard saying that he has succeeded in escaping from Pakistan’s jail.

“I am Ehsanullah Ehsan. I am the former spokesman of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and Jamaatul Ahrar. I had surrendered to the Pakistani security authorities on February 5, 2017, under an agreement. I honored this agreement for three years, but the Pakistani authorities violated it and kept me in a prison along with my children,” Ehsan said in the audio clip.

He further said that he will release a detailed statement later in which he will reveal the agreement he made with the Pakistani security authorities.

“I will also mention on whose approval this accord was made with me. And what were the terms and conditions of the agreement and which prominent figure had assured me that the agreement will be implemented,” he said.
