NEW DELHI: India was today not impressed by the detention of Hafiz Saeed, saying only a “credible crackdown” on terror outfits, including Saeed’s, will prove Pakistan’s sincerity as such actions had been taken against the 26/11 Mumbai attack mastermind in the past too.
“We have also noted that Hafiz Saeed and four others have been placed under preventive detention.
“Exercises such as yesterday’s orders against Hafiz Saeed and others have been carried out by Pakistan in the past also. Only a credible crack down on the mastermind of the Mumbai terrorist attack and terrorist organisations involved in cross border terrorism would be proof of Pakistan’s sincerity,” MEA spokesman Vikas Swarup said.
With the Trump administration mounting pressure, Pakistani authorities had last night put Saeed and four others under detention under an Anti-Terrorism Act. (AGENCIES)
