Indian Government sources: Arrest, release of Lashkar chief Saeed an eyewash

By Super Admin

New Delhi, June 2 (ANI): Sources in the Indian Government reacted with dismay on hearing the news of the Lahore High Court ending the house arrest of Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamaat-ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed on Tuesday.

Most of them described Saeed's arrest by the Pakistani authorities for his role in the Mumbai terror attacks of November 2008 as an eyewash.

They said that the high court's view that there was just not enough evidence to continue the detention of Saeed certified that similar arrests made in the past have also ended in similar releases.

They said the Lahore High Court order showed that Pakistan is back to backing terrorism from its soil again, despite the evidence supplied by New Delhi indicating Saeed's clear role in 26/11.

An official reaction from the Ministry of External Affairs is expected later in the day. (ANI)
