Pak Court Holds Hafiz Saeed Guilty In Terror Funds Case


The 26/11 terror attack mastermind, Hafiz Saeed, was held guilty of terror financing by a court in Pakistan’s Gujranwala, news agency ANI quoted Pakistani media as saying.

His case has been shifted to Pakistan’s Gujarat, the media reports said.

The UN proscribed terrorist was arrested by Pakistani authorities on July 17 over charges related to terror financing and was sent to seven days in judicial custody, which was later extended to 14 days on July 24.

The Pakistani court had directed the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) to file a complete chargesheet of the case against Hafiz by August 7, ANI quoted Geo News.

Earlier on July 3, the top 13 leaders of the banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), including Saeed, were booked in nearly two dozen cases of terror financing and money laundering.

In its charges, the CTD stated that JuD was involved in terror financing collected through several charitable organisations. The terrorist was reportedly on way to an ant-terror court in Gujranwala to seek bail when he was arrested.
