Pak authorities book Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed, others in terror funding cases

Pakistan authorities on Wednesday booked Hafiz Saeed, chief of Jamaa-ud-Dawa and others in terror funding cases, amid growing international pressure to act against militant groups. Hafiz Saeed is a mastermind of deadly 26/11 Mumbai terror attack in 2008.

According to reports, Pakistan’s counter-terrorism department had launched 23 cases against Saeed and 12 aides for using five trusts to collect funds and donations for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

The cases were registered in Lahore, Gujranwala, and Multan for collection of funds for terrorism financing through assets made in names of Non-Profit Organisations, including Al-Anfaal Trust, Dawat ul Irshad Trust and others.

Two banned LeT-linked charities, Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation (FIF), were also targeted, the department said in a statement. Read More
