  • "Lawyers of Saeed and his close aides completed the cross examination of the prosecution witnesses in the Anti-Terrorism Court-I Lahore here on Thursday," a court official told PTI after the hearing which lasted for more than six hours.

    The Anti-Terrorism Court-I indicted Saeed and his close aides - Hafiz Abdul Salam, Muhammad Ashraf and Zafar Iqbal - on terror financing charges on December 11.

    The 23-year-old terrorist Nissar Ahmad Dar, who hails from Wahab Parray Mohalla at Hajin, was active for the last few years and is a categorised terrorist in security establishment's data base. He was in the wanted list of security forces. He is involved in eight cases, seven in 2016 and one in 2019.

    The FATF had said earlier that Pakistan has been unable to deal with terror groups propping up under different banners, with many contesting last year’s general elections as well.

    Senior police officer Imtiyaz Hussain tweeted: "The boy Feroz by name was killed by terrorists in a mosque and a secessionist leader back then had issued a statement saying that boy's life should have been spared if he had taken refuge in mosque. Means otherwise he was Wajib-ul-Qatal (gallows bird)."

    US Congressman Paul A Gosar (Arizona) has come out strongly in support of PM Narendra Modi's measures to promote peace in J&K and combat cross-border terror.

    India’s diplomatic battleground through most of 2019 turned out to be the UN, particularly the UN Security Council. The most recent success for India was compelling China to withdraw a request for a discussion on J&K in the UNSC. Also, it was also the first time ever that the UNSC condemned a single terror attack (Pulwama) which targetted the armed forces.

    The Paris-based FATF, which kept Pakistan on the Grey List for an extended period till February 2020, had warned in October that Islamabad would be put on the Black List if it did not comply with the remaining 22 points in a list of 27 questions. Pakistan has been given January 8, 2020 deadline to respond to the 150 questions, the official said on Saturday.

    One of the two militants killed in an encounter with the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora district on Monday was a Pakistani-born self-styled commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba

    A two-judge bench of the Lahore High Court headed by Justice Mohammad Qasim Khan while disposing of the petition observed that the petitioner's counsel might file separate petitions against each FIR. Saeed's counsel A K Dogar said that describing Saeed and other JuD leaders as being leaders of Lashkar-e-Taiba is "factually and legally incorrect".

    Saeed's indictment comes amidst growing pressure on Pakistan to rein-in terror groups and bring to justice terror group leaders. ​​The indictment comes less than a week after Islamabad submitted a report to the FATF, which, in October, had kept the country on the Grey List, asking that it take more concrete steps to avoid being put on the Black List.
