Islamabad, July 7 (ANI): The Pakistan Government and the Punjab province Government on Tuesday re-filed the petitions against the release of Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, after removing the objections.

The federal and Punjab governments after removing these objections have re-filed the petitions.

Talking to Geo News, Deputy Attorney General Shah Khawar said the federal and Punjab governments filed separate petitions against the release of Hafiz Saeed, adding the release of Colonel (retired) Nazeer Ahmed has also been challenged in the apex court.

Earlier, the Supreme Court (SC) registrar's office on Monday raised objections over and returned petitions separately filed by the federal and the Punjab governments challenging the release of Saeed.

In the objections raised by the court, the registrar's office pointed out that supporting documents attached with the petitions were "not readable" and needed to be replaced with legible ones, Khawar told reporters at the SC. (ANI)
