Lahore: Amidst peace-talk between India and Pakistan, the neighbour country government has restored the security of global terrorist Hafiz Saeed. The security ramp-up has been implemented in the wake of life threat to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder and Mumbai terror attack mastermind.
According to several media reports, the order has been passed by Punjab province Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who is also the brother of ousted Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
The move came after the Punjab government, in April, withdrew Saeed’s security on the order of Pakistan’s Supreme Court.
This development has also taken place barely days after US State Department called the UN designated global terrorist, who carries a USD 10 million American bounty for his role in terror activities, a “tremendous concern” to Washington.
