 Baitullah Mehsud is alive, claims Hakeemullah Mehsud
 Updated at: 1306 PST,  Saturday, August 08, 2009
Baitullah Mehsud is alive, claims Hakeemullah Mehsud PESHAWAR: The spokesman of Tahreek-e-Taliban and close relative of Baitullah Mehsud has denied the reports of killing of Baitullah Mehsud and claimed that he is alive.

Talking to an Arabic Television, Hakeemullah said Baitullah is alive and continuing to lead the Tehreek. A videotape will be released soon as a proof of this statement, he added.

Hakeemullah said Baitullah has gone into hiding as part of a strategy and he is not in contact with anyone after the drone attack.

Replying to question about Baitullah Mehsud’s presence in his father-in-law’s house, Hakeemullah said staying at in-laws house is against Pushtoon tradition and that Baitullah was not there at the time of the drone strike. He said meetings of Majlis-e-Shura of Tahreek-e-Taliban are part of the Tehreek’s routine.
