According to well-placed sources, the JuD chief was put under house arrest for three months in Lahore and a contingent of police was deployed at his residence.
Police began closing the offices of Jamaat-ud-Dawa across the country after the UN Security Council on Thursday declared the organisation a terrorist group, The News reported.
The assets of JuD and of the nine leaders have been frozen, the senior government official said, and their names will also be placed on the exit control list to prevent them from leaving the country.
The regional offices of Jamaat have also been sealed in Karachi , Hyderabad , Islamabad , Rawalpindi and Pakistan Kashmir.
Earlier, The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has reportedly banned the political wing of the banned militant organization Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), the Jamaat-ud-Dawa.
The Security Council has also declared it a terrorist organization.
A committee of the UN Security Council placed financial sanctions on four members of the LeT, as well as the charitable organization that Indian and U.S. officials say serves as the Lashkar’’s financial front, according to the U.N. (ANI)
