Under pressure, Pak acts against Saeed

world Updated: Sep 19, 2009 00:08 IST

Under mounting international pressure, the Pakistani police have registered two cases against JuD chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, the mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, and one against his close aide Abu Jandal under the Anti-Terrorism Act.

Three FIRs — two against Saeed and one against Abu Jandal — were registered at police stations in Faisalabad, about 100 km from Lahore, for inciting people to wage “jehad” (holy war) against “infidels”, said a senior police officer.

The officer, who did not wish to be identified, said Saeed had attended Iftar-dinners and held a meeting with activists of his banned Jamaat-ud-Dawah organisation on August 27 and 28 during which he asked the people to wage a jehad.

The police action against Saeed came days ahead of a proposed meeting between the foreign ministers and foreign secretaries of India and Pakistan on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in New York.

Share terror info with us: Pak tells India

Pakistan has asked India to share any "credible information" it has about possible terrorist attacks on India so that such incidents could be pre-empted. This came after Israel's counter-terrorism agency issued a travel advisory to Israeli tourists in India, referring to J&K.
