Lahore: The Pakistan government on Tuesday sought the extension of Mumbai attack mastermind and Jamat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed’s detention under the public safety law. It has withdrawn application to prolong his house arrest two days ago under the anti-terrorism law.The JuD head has been under house arrest since January.

He was presented before a three-member Punjab provincial judicial review board amid high security.

 The Judicial Review Board  heard arguments of a law officer of the Punjab Home Department for the extension of detention of Saeed and his four close aides – Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain.

Their detention period is scheduled to expire on October 24. Under the law, the government can detain a person for up to three months under different charges. The government can extend the detention only after the approval from the judicial review board.

The board, after hearing the law officer, issued notices to Advocate General Punjab and foreign and interior secretaries to appear before it on October 19 to tell as to why the government wants extension to Saeed’s house arrest.

On last Saturday, the Punjab Home Department had withdrawn its request from federal board to seek the extension to detention of Saeed and others under “anti-terrorism act”.

On January 31, Saeed and four others were detained by the Punjab government for 90 days under preventative detention under the Anti-terrorism Act 1997. However, the last two extensions were made on the ‘public safety law’.

The Jamat-ud-Dawah (JuD) has already been declared as a foreign terrorist organisation by the United States in June 2014. The JuD chief carries a reward ofUSD 10 million announced by the US for his role in terror activities.
