Pakistan Court orders release of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday has ordered the release of Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed. Subsequently, his house arrest had been extended several times. "Hafiz Saeed always worked for Pakistan and the government could not prove any allegation against him", he said. However, his release could lead to the breach of some global rules, given that he is a wanted criminal who masterminded the terrorist attack on Mumbai.

It should be recalled that Saeed was put on house arrest on January 30, this year.

The government had informed the judicial body that Saeed's release could lead to imposition of worldwide sanctions on Pakistan. Saeed's detention ends on Thursday.

The board's order paves the way for Saeed's release.

The name of Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi was included in the 90-member campaign committee for the West Bengal assembly elections in 2016. He had begun his political career with the Indian Youth Congress before entering Parliament in 1971.

Saeed's aides were freed in the last week of October after the Punjab government did not extend the notification for their detention under the Anti-Terrorism Act and withdrew an application pending before the federal review board.

On January 31, Saeed and his four aides - Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain - were detained by the Punjab government for 90 days under Anti-Terrorism Act 1997 and the Fourth Schedule of Anti- Terrorism Act 1997.

Following the decision, Mastermind of Mumbai 26/11 attack will be freed tomorrow. His party had moved to court against the arrest and the matter was then referred to the review board.

His spokesman, Yahya Mujahid, says a three-judge panel dismissed the government's plea.
