Islamabad. The mastermind of the Mumbai terrorist attack and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JUD) gangster Hafiz Saeed was arrested by the Anti-Terrorism Department (CTD) from Punjab province of Pakistan on Wednesday. This action was done a few days ago by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan's first visit to America. US President Donald Trump has tweeted on the arrest of Hafiz. He wrote in tweets that, finally, the mastermind of the Mumbai attack was caught.
President Trump tweeted on the arrest of Hafiz, writing that the so-called 'mastermind' of Mumbai terrorist attacks in Pakistan has been arrested after looking for ten years. To find him, big pressure has been put in the last two years. The US Department of Finance has put Saeed in the terrorist list and the US has declared a $ 10 million reward for sending information to Sayeed for the year 2012.
After a ten year search, the so-called "mastermind" of the Mumbai terror attack has been arrested in Pakistan. Great pressure has been exhausted over the last two years!

According to the report of the Pakistani media, Hafeez Sayeed, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa handler, was caught in Lahore from Lahore to Gujranwala and sent to judicial custody. The official said that the JUD was going to Gujranwala from Lahore on Wednesday morning when the CTD team stopped him near Gujranwala town about 80 kilometers from Lahore and arrested him on charges of terrorism financing. After this, he was sent to high security coat Lakhpat Jail where former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was closed.
Sayeed's arrest took place at a time when Prime Minister Imran Khan is going on a trip to America on July 21. During this time he will interact with US President Donald Trump. Trump has repeatedly been asking Pakistan to follow the commitments of the UN Security Council to eliminate terrorists' hideouts and stop their access to money. Sayeed's arrest is seen as increasing pressure on Pakistan in relation to FATF's commitments.
