Baitullah Mehsud’s successor is known for his cruelty. He has led dozens of major terrorist operations against the Pakistani forces and on supply trucks destined for Afghanistan, catapulting him among the ranks of the Pakistani Taliban.

TTP sources say despite his young age, the battle-hardened Hakimullah was unanimously elected as the new TTP chief because of his proximity with Baitullah Mehsud, extraordinary military skills, personal charisma and leadership abilities.
