Pakistan’s anti-terrorism court (ATC) extended the judicial custody of 26/11 mastermind and UN-proscribed terrorist Hafiz Saeed till August 7. The chief of terror outfit LeT, Hafiz Saeed was arrested last week over charges related to terror funding and was sent to seven days judicial custody, that has currently been extended by fourteen days.
The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) has been ordered by the court to present a whole charge-sheet of the case against Hafiz by August seven, according to Geo News. Hafiz was arrested specifically a week ago whereas he was on his thanks to an ATC in Gujranwala to seek bail.
Saeed’s arrest came simply 2 days once an ATC in Lahore granted interim bail to him and 3 of his aides till August thirty one against surety bonds of PKR 50,000 each.
In the 1st week of July, the top thirteen leaders of the banned JuD, as well as Saeed and Naib emeer Abdul Rehman Makki, were reserved in nearly large integer cases for terror financing and money laundering below the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997.
The CTD, that registered the cases in 5 cities of punjab in pakistan, had stated that JuD was involved in terror funding collected through charitable organisations as well as Al-Anfaal Trust, Dawatul Irshad Trust, and Muaz Bin Jabal Trust.
Just a couple of days past, pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan dodged an issue relating to Hafiz’s arrest and therefore the any course of action against him, throughout an incident in Washington. Reacting to Hafiz’s latest arrest, us President Donald Trump had previously claimed that Hafiz was nabbed once a ten-year search in Pakistan, that was countered by the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
