In 2007, Nazir led a tribal 'lashkar' or militia and expelled Uzbek fighters from Wana.
But he was suspected of sheltering militants from other countries.
Nazir's group had also formed an alliance with a Taliban faction in North Waziristan led by Hafiz Gul Bahadar.
The two commanders formed the "Shura-e-Mujahideen" and declared Afghan Taliban commander Mullah Omar as their chief.
Security analysts said the killing of Nazir could prompt his fighters to launch attacks on Pakistani security forces.
