LAHORE: The 2008 Mumbai attack mastermind and chief of the banned JuD Hafiz Saeed and his six senior aides on Friday challenged the charges of terror financing and money laundering against them in a top Pakistani court here.
The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of Punjab Police on July 3 registered 23 FIRs against 13 leaders of the Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) including its chief Saeed on the charges of “terror financing” in different cities of Punjab province.
Despite the Punjab Police’s claim that all those nominated in the terror financing FIRs will be arrested, no action has been taken against them so far.
On Friday Saeed, who is reportedly living at his Jauhar Town residence in Lahore, challenged these FIRs in the Lahore High Court (LHC). Saeed and other six JuD leaders made the federal and the Punjab Governments, and CTD respondents in the case. (AGENCIES)
