new Delhi: There is a big news coming from the Pakistani media that the most wanted terrorist Hafiz Saeed has been arrested. He has been arrested in the Terror Funding case. He was arrested while going to Gujranwala from Lahore. In Pakistan, the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of Punjab has arrested him. He was sent to judicial custody According to sources, the Government of India has a look at this incident. Hafeez has been arrested at a time when Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is scheduled to visit the US. It is notable that Hafeez Sayeed, the gangster of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa terrorist organization, is considered to be the main conspirator of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks (26/11).
However, in the past days, Hafiz Saeed and some other terrorists have challenged the terror financing case lodged against them in the Lahore High Court. In a report published in the Pakistani media, it was said that other terrorists who have challenged the case of terrorism lodged against Saeed along with Saeed include the notorious Abdur Rehman Makki, Amir Hamza, M. Jia Aziz and four others. They all made the central government of Pakistan, the state of Punjab province and the counter-insurgency department (CTD) of the country as a defendant.
Earlier this month, CTD of Punjab had registered 23 cases against Saeed and 12 other colleagues in the case of terror financing. They have been accused that these terrorists are providing funding for activities through five trusts. CTD had said that it has registered cases against the organization Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Falah-e-Insariyat under Lahore Anti-Terrorism Act in Lahore, Gujranwala and Multan.
Pakistan raised this step after the international pressure on it for decisive action against terrorism. The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), a watchdog monitoring terrorist financing, has put Pakistan in the 'gray' list in the case of money laundering and terror financing and has given a deadline of October to improve it.
