Mumbai: The Lahore High Court on Monday accepted an application by Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed, challenging his arrest in the terror-financing case.
A two-member bench of the Lahore HC sought a detailed report in this regard from the Punjab government and the Anti-Terrorism Department on October 28 after hearing the arguments.
The United Nations-designated global terrorist was arrested on July 17 in connection with the terrorism-financing case on his way to Lahore to Gujranwala. The terrorist was accused of collecting funds for banned organizations.
On July 3, the top 13 leaders of the banned JuD, including Saeed and Naib Amir Abdul Rahman Makki, were booked under the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997, in nearly two dozen cases of terror financing and money laundering.
