As of early 2015, ISIL leader al-Badri (known as, al-Baghdadi) appointed Pakistani national Khan as the emir of ISIL in the Khorasan (ISIL-K)- the organization’s branch in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Khan was recruited to ISIL by al-Badri and pledged allegiance to him in October 2014.

As leader of ISIL-K, Khan, plays a central role in expanding ISIL’s operations in the region, commanding militants and coordinating the delivery of supplies and munitions, the travel of associates, and other arrangements.

In mid-2015, Khan appointed ISIL representatives in Kunar Province and Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan and approved funding for the establishment of a training camp for ISIL fighters in western Afghanistan.

ISIL militants under Khan’s command had taken control of several districts in Nangarhar Province in mid-2015.

In early 2015, Khan claimed that ISIL was responsible for the April 18, 2015 suicide attacks in Jalalabad City, Nangarhar Province which killed approximately 33 people.

Khan formerly served as a senior commander in Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan.
