Pak court: Saeed will be released if evidence not submitted
Mumbai attack mastermind and banned Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed’s house arrest will be set aside if the Pakistan Government fails to submit any concrete evidence against him, a top court here has warned.
Saeed and four of his associates are under house arrest in Lahore since January 30 under the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday heard a plea against Saeed’s detention. The interior secretary was supposed to appear before the court along with complete record of the case related to his detention along with four others.
Irked by the absence of the interior secretary during the proceedings, the court said “no citizen can be detained for an extended period on the basis of merely press clippings”.
