Taliban’s reclusive leader Mullah Omar has had a mental breakdown,one of his close aides has claimed.

“If Mullah Omar were in good condition,he would send proof he is alive,” his ex-henchmen,who have not seen him for 11 years,said.

“I have not met Mullah Omar since 2001. I have questions about orders issued in his name,” the ex-associate added.

The one-eyed Mullah,one of the world’s most wanted men,disappeared after the 9/11 terror attacks.

Black-bearded Omar,53,was last seen on a motorbike heading for the mountains after the invasion of Afghanistan that followed the 9/11 attacks.

According to the Sun,it is thought he may have had depression since 1999,when he survived a bomb attack that killed two of his brothers.

His family has a history of mental disorder,the report said.

According to the report,Omar has a 6.5 million pounds price on his head.
