President Trump welcomes arrest of JuD chief

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok):  US President Donald Trump has welcomed the arrest of the Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief in a terror financing case.

Hafiz Saeed was arrested ahead of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s upcoming visit to the United States for talks with the US leader.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Trump wrote: “After a ten-year search, the so-called ‘mastermind’ of the Mumbai terror attacks has been arrested in Pakistaninfo-icon.”

Great pressure had been exerted over the last two years to find the insurgent leader, who was taken into custody by a team of Punjab Counter Terrorism Department (CTD).

Saeed was detained at a toll plaza about 50km from Lahore. He was travelling to a Gujranwala anti-terrorism court (ATC) to secure pre-arrest bail.

After the CTD produced him before the Gujranwala ATC, Saeed was sent to jail on a seven-day judicial remand.

Pakistan has been facing pressure from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to act against the organisations involved in terror financing and money laundering.
