Saeed's release: Pak 'hoodwinking' global community

26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed to walk free? Pakistan court orders release

In a major development and a massive jolt to India, Pakistani court has ordered the release of 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed who was under house arrest.

The provincial government of Pakistan's eastern province of Punjab had asked for an extension to Saeed's detention but the request was turned down by the court, reports quoting prosecutor Sattar Sahil.

The court had warned the government last month that it would end Saeed's house arrest if enough evidence was not submitted against the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief. In October, the board had allowed a 30-day extension to the detention of Saeed which will expire next week. Saeed is now free to walk anywhere, unless there is any other case made against him, which doesn't seem to be happening.

With the fresh order from the court, Saeed would be free unless the Pakistan government files review petition against the Laskar-e-Taiba (LeT) co-founder in any other cases.

Rejecting the government's plea to extend his detention for another three months, the board ordered Saeed's release.

Donald Trump Says He Should Have Left UCLA Players Jailed In China
Sunday's tweet from the president of the United States calling out Lavar Ball by name somehow seemed like a foregone conclusion. Before they thanked Trump on Wednesday for intervening with Xi, Trump had wondered whether they would express gratitude to him.

It was reported that Terrorist Hafiz Saeed was given the order of house arrest in January.

On November 26, 2008, ten LeT operatives entered Mumbai by sea and launched a coordinated gun-and-bomb assault on multiple sites in India's most populous metropolis, killing 166 people - including six Jews at the Nariman House.

A Punjab Home Department official said it is feared the release could invite global sanctions on the country. On January 31, Saeed and his four aides - Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain.

The banned Jamaat-ud-Dawah head, who carries a bounty of United States dollars 10 million announced by the USA for his role in terror activities, has been under detention since January this year.

Speaking to PTI, an official source said, "The government can not afford to set Saeed free in the current circumstance". Nine of the attackers were killed by police while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was caught.
