Interpol red notice for Hafiz Saeed

Staff Report

KARACHI: Interpol has issued a red notice for the chief of the banned Lashkar-e Toiba Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, according to an Indian newspaper.

A notice was also issued for Zaki-ur Rehman, one of Saeed's aides. The notices were issued after the Mumbai court issued non-bailable arrest warrants for both men.

AGENCIES ADD: On Aug 21, India gave Pakistan a new dossier of evidence to prosecute Hafiz Saeed, the suspected mastermind of the three-day carnage that killed 166 people in Mumbai in November.

The new dossier on Saeed, founder of a Pakistani militant group blamed for the attacks on Mumbai, comes two weeks after Islamabad said evidence supplied by India against Saeed was too weak to prosecute him.

Indian officials have insisted Pakistan has enough evidence to successfully prosecute leaders of the Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group, including Saeed.

Saeed was detained in the wake of the Mumbai attacks after a U.N. Security Council resolution put him on a list of people and organisations supporting al Qaeda.

But in June, the Lahore High Court released him on grounds of insufficient evidence, prompting the Pakistan government to lodge an appeal with the Supreme Court for his re-arrest. SAMAA/AGENCIES
