Security forces have seized CDs of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Hafeez Sayeed from a group of infiltrators during an encounter in the Poonch district recently, police sources said on Sunday.

They said that Al-Qaeda supremo Osama Bin Laden's provocative CDs were also recovered from village Gursai in Mendhar tehsil of Poonch district.

Hafeez Sayeed, currently in a Pakistani jail, changed the name of his organisation to Jamaat-ud-Dawa after the LeT was banned by the US and Pakistan.

"The Lashkar chief was clearly heard provoking youth of the state to join jihad and get arms training in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK)," sources added.

They said CDs had been recorded and shot at Jamaat-ud-Dawa office at Chburgi, Lahore, bearing telephone numbers (042) 7240940, 7230549 and 7231106 and email address www.jamatdawa.org.

This is for the first time that the audio and video CDs of Hafeez Sayeed have been seized from the possession of slain terrorists during the 17 years of terrorism in the state, sources said.
