Khar, Sept 7(ANI): The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has set conditions for releasing the 27 children it has been holding hostage for about a week.


Last Friday, TTP militants had kidnapped the children after they had accidentally crossed the border from Bajaur Agency into Afghanistan, while picnicking on Eidul Fitr.


In a video released to the media from Kunar in Afghanistan, Bajaur TTP chief Maulana Dadullah confirmed that the 27 children from Mamond tehsil were in the custody of his group, the Dawn reports.


The TTP demanded that the government should release children and women languishing in various prisons, stop instigating tribesmen to form anti-Taliban lashkars and disband such lashkars and 'peace committees' in Bajaur, the report said.


Dadullah said the children were safe, adding that no one had so far contacted the Taliban for negotiating their release


He also threatened that the lives of the children could be at risk if the demands were not met. (ANI)
