Pakistan books Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed in Terror financing case

Amidst growing international pressure on Islamabad to act against terror groups, Pakistani authorities on Wednesday booked 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed and his 12 accomplices for “terror financing” in 23 cases.  Pakistan’s counter-terrorism department in a statement said that the Jamaat-ud-Dawa Chief and other leaders were booked in cases of financing terrorist activities. All the assets of these organizations and individuals will be frozen and taken over by the state. They will be prosecuted in Anti-Terrorism Courts for commission of these offences. The cases have been registered in Lahore, Gujranwala and Multan for collection of funds for terrorism financing through assets made and held in the names of trusts.
