Islamabad, May 25: Pak Supreme Court dismissed the appeal filed by authorities challenging the release of Hafiz Muhammed Saeed, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief who is suspected by India as the mastermind behind the Mumbai attacks, from house arrest on Tuesday, May 25.
The three-members panel lead by Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk, dismissed the appeals.
