In a major breakthrough, Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jama'at-ud-Da'wah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed has been arrested.
As per latest reports, the dreaded terrorist Hafiz Saeed was arrested on Wednesday when he was on his way to Gujranwala from Lahore.
The 69-year-old is a co-founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and is the chief of Jama'at-ud-Da'wah (JuD),operating mainly from Pakistan. In April 2012, the United States announced a bounty of $10 million on Saeed for his alleged role in the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 164 civilians. While India supported the US move, there were protests against it in Pakistan.
The Imran Khan government has been put under pressure from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to act against terror outfits and terrorists operating out of Pakistan ever since the dastardly attacks at Pulwama in Kashmir which killed at least 40 CRPF jawans.
