Hafiz Saeed released from house arrest

Three-member review board in LHC rejected government's request for extension in Saeed's house arrest

A review board comprising judges of the Lahore High Court on Wednesday refused to extend the detention orders of Jamaatud Dawa's (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed.

A US state department spokesperson said: "The US is aware of media reports regarding Pakistan's ordered release of Lashkar-e-Tayyiba leader Hafiz Saeed from house arrest". The board - which had earlier agreed to extend the 26/11 Mumbai attack mastermind's detention for a month - has now ordered for the release of the terrorist who had been under house arrest since January. "Saeed has been placed under house arrest only to please the U.S. and India", Dogar said and warned the government from detaining Saeed again in any other "fake" case or charges.

Hafiz Saeed term will be expiring next week.

A Judicial Review Board of Pakistan's Punjab province today ordered the release of Hafiz Saeed. It had submitted before the review board that release of Saeed could lead to the imposition of global sanctions on Pakistan. Whereas, Saeed's four aides were set free in the last week of October.

Under the law, the government can detain a person for up to three months under different charges but for extension to that detention it needs approval from a judicial review board.
