Byline: ANI

Lahore, Sep.29 (ANI): Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik Noun 1. malik - the leader of a town or community in some parts of Asia Minor and the Indian subcontinent; "maliks rule the hinterland of Afghanistan under the protection of warlords"  has rejected media reports that top Taliban commander Mullah Omar Noun 1. Mullah Omar - reclusive Afghanistani politician and leader of the Taliban who imposed a strict interpretation of shariah law on Afghanistan (born in 1960)
Mullah Mohammed Omar
 was hiding in Quetta.

A private television channel quoted Malik as saying that Omar was in Kandahar, Afghanistan and not in Quetta as was reported by The Sunday Times.

He also denied that the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI ISI International Sensitivity Index, see there ) was helping the Quetta based Taliban leadership council in its fight against the foreign troops in Afghanistan.

"The ISI's role in fighting the Taliban had been acknowledged by international intelligence establishments. The report is an attempt to undermine Pakistan's efforts in the fight against terrorism," The Daily Times quoted Malik, as saying. (ANI)
