Taliban supreme leader Mullah Habitullah Akhundzada's close aide was killed by unknown attackers in Pakistan close to the Pakistan-Afghanistan border on Saturday, media reports said.

The deceased was identified as Mohammad Omar Jan Akhundzada.

He was reportedly leading an evening prayer at a mosque in Quetta when he was targeted.

No group or individual have taken responsibility for the incident so far.

Akhundzada hailed from Zabul province and held the position of chief at a seminary in Kandahar, reported The Express Tribune.

Afghan Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid, on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), urged local authorities to take decisive action against those responsible for the assassination, the newspaper reported.

The deceased was reportedly visiting the region on Eid holidays.
