Islamabad, May 30 (ANI): The hearing into the detention case of the banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed has been completed, and the Lahore High Court has preserved its verdict which would made public later.

According to The News, secret documents related to Saeed were tabled before the court by the federal and provincial government in a closed door session.

Attorney General Sardar Latif Khosa said it was done because the documents were concerned with national security.

Saeed’s counsel AK Dogar, however, objected to close door proceedings of the court and demanded that the documents should be presented in an open session and in the presence of Saeed.

It may be noted that Khosa recently told the Lahore High Court (LHC) that the government had ‘enough material’ against the JuD leaders to prove that they have been involved in terror activities, but it could not produce it before a court of law. (ANI)
