Pakistan admits JuD running terror camps, claims arrests of Lakhvi, Saeed

By Super Admin

Islamabad, Jan.15 (ANI): Pakistan has claimed that it has come down hard on the terrorist outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), and has put its top leaders Hafiz Saeed and Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi behind bars, after admitting that the outfit was actually running terror camps behind the garb of a religious charity.

Interestingly, the clampdown against the Jamaat-ud-Dawa came after the Saudi intelligence chief's visit to Pakistan earlier this week.

It also claims to have shut down five camps of the JuD.

"The crackdown was in response to the UN's accusation that a Pakistani charity was a front for an outlawed militant group allegedly linked to the Mumbai attacks," The Dawn quoted Pak interior secretary Rehman Malik, as saying.

Malik told reporters here that the camps JuD claiming to be doing relief work, had actually been militant training camps.

All the print and publications work including the website of the outfit has also been blocked with immediate effect, he said.

The latest action against the JuD has put a stamp to the Indian stance that the group was involved in masterminding the November, 2008 Mumbai terror attack in which around 200 people, including foreigners were killed. (ANI)
