COURT VERDICT ON DETENTION OF HAFIZ SAEED MOVED TO JUL 3
Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed and his four aides will have to celebrate Eid in custody as the Lahore High Court on Monday deferred till July 3 its verdict on their detention case.
“As a division bench headed by Justice Abdul Sami Khan today held the court to announce the verdict a government law officer requested it (bench) to defer it as the deputy attorney general was not present in the court,” a court official told reporters outside the courtroom. Accepting the government’s request, the bench deferred the announcement of its verdict in Saeed’s house arrest case till July 3, the official said.
He gave no further reason for deferring the announcement. “The bench will again sit on July 3 and announce the verdict in Saeed’s case,” he added. PTI
