Pakistan seeks extension of Hafiz Saeed’s detention

Hafiz SaeedThe Pakistan Government today sought the extension of Mumbai terror attack mastermind and the Jamat-ud-Dawah (JuD) Chief Hafiz Saeed’s detention under the public safety law, two days after withdrawing its application to prolong his house arrest under the anti-terrorism law.

The JuD head, who has been under house arrest since January, was presented before a three-member Punjab provincial judicial review board amid high security.

The Judicial Review Board comprising Justice Yawar Ali, Justice Abdul Sami and Justice Alia Neelam heard arguments of a law officer of the Punjab Home Department for the extension of detention of Saeed and his four close aides – Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain. Their detention period is scheduled to expire on the 24th of this month.

Lahore police had made strict security measures around the Lahore High Court building where Saeed and others were presented before the board.

The board, after hearing the law officer, issued notices to Advocate General Punjab and foreign and interior secretaries to appear before it on Thursday (October 19) to tell as to why the government wants extension to Saeed’s house arrest.
