JuD chief Hafiz Saeed sent to 14-day judicial remand
Islamabad, July 24: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Wednesday sent arrested Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed to judicial custody for 14 days, media reports said.

During proceedings, the ATC directed the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) to present a complete charge sheet against Hafiz Saeed by August 7, Geo News reported.

 

Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief and the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, Hafiz Saeed, was arrested by the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of Pakistan last week.

 

Geo News reported that Hafiz Saeed, who has several cases pending against him, was travelling to Gujranwala from Lahore to appear before an anti-terrorism court when he was arrested.

 

Hafiz Saeed is the masternind of the 2008 November Mumbai attacks, infamously known as 26/11, when a series of strikes were unleashed in India's financial capital by 10 members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, an Islamic terrorist organisation based in Pakistan.

 

Of the 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks lasting four days across Mumbai when the city's top hotels were invaded by the terrorists,  at least 174 people were killed and many wounded.

 

The Pakistani government in 2017 had put under house arrest Hafiz Saeed.
