Islamabad, Aug 3: The Supreme Court of Pakistani on Monday, Aug 3 let off the Jammat-ud-Dawa chief and the main accused in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Hafiz Saeed citing lack of evidence.
The court adjourned the hearing of Hafiz Saeed indefinitely based on the admission from the Pakistani government officials, including Interior Minister Rehman Malik, that their government had no concrete evidence to prosecute the JuD chief.
The ruling came after the court took up petitions challenging the release of Hafiz Saeed from house arrest. Saeed's lawyer, AK Dogar now claims that his client is a 'free man'.
This move by the Pakistan court comes as a blow to India's efforts to prosecute the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks perpetrators. This comes after India submitted a dossier that pointed out the involvement of the JuD chief in the terror attacks of 2008.
