Pak envoy calls on MEA officials

Taliban New Delhi, June 3 (ANI): As the release of Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafeez Sayeed still looms over Indo-Pak ties, Pakistan High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik met senior officials of the Ministry of External Affairs on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, New Delhi reacted strongly following a Lahore high Court ordered to set the Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief free.

Saeed was put under house arrest in early December after a U.N. Security Council committee added his name to a list of people linked to Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

Saeed founded the Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group in 1990. He stepped down as LeT leader shortly after India accused the group of being behind the parliament attack in December 2001.

The group was banned in Pakistan in January 2002. (ANI)
