The Pakistani anti-terrorism court adjourns the verdict against 26/11 Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed. There were two financing cases imposed on Saeed and on his request the court has adjourned the hearing till Tuesday.
Judge Arshad Hussain Bhutta of Lahore Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) reserved the verdict last week. This was against Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief who had two financing cases for Saturday.
Hearing Saeed’s request, he deputy prosecutor opposed. He stated that the trial for both cases is completed and the verdict will be announced soon under the law, the official said. So, the ATC adjourned the hearing till Feb 11. It also issued a notice to defence and prosecution arguing on Saeed’s plea. Also, they ordered them to produce the mastermind with high security before ATC.
The prosecution hence produced 20 witnesses before the ATC. They testified against Saeed and his aides for terror financing. The ATC charged Saeed and others on December 11. This is for terror financing cases. Saeed has already given his statement in two terror cases and pleaded “not guilty”.
The cases were filed in Lahore and Gujranwala. This is under the Punjab Police application of the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD).
The US Department named Saeed as Specially Designated Global Terrorist. Since 2012, US offered a $10 million reward for any person who gives information on Saeed.
