Lahore High Court adjourns hearing of Hafiz Saeed’s detention caseMay 16th, 2009 - 1:04 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, May 16 (ANI): The Lahore High Court has adjourned the hearing of a habeas corpus petition against the detention of Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) Chief Hafiz Saeed till May 21.
The High Court bench comprising Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry, Justice Hasnat Ahmad Khan and Justice Zubda-tul-Hussain adjourned the hearing after counsels of both the sides concluded their arguments, The News reports.
The petitioner’s counsel argued that the United Nations (UN) maintained a biased policy, as its resolution does not seek detention of JuD leaders.
The counsel said that even the ban imposed on Saeed and Colonel (retired) Nazir Ahmad’s travel was against the constitution of the country.
Saeed is accused of being involved in masterminding the November, 2008 Mumbai terror attack in which around 200 people, including foreigners were killed.
He along with another top JuD leader Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi were arrested after the United Nation accused the JuD of being a front for the outlawed militant group, Lashkare-eTaiba (LeT) which had allegedly plotted and carried out the Mumbai attacks.(ANI)
