Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief and 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed was arrested in Pakistan's Lahore on Wednesday and sent to judicial custody, as per reports. Hafiz Saeed was arrested by the Counter-Terrorism Department while he was travelling from to Gujranwala from Lahore to appear before an anti-terrorism court. Pakistan registered cases of terror financing against Saeed, his brother-in-law and other aides. The move follows the Financial Action Task Force's warning to Pakistan to improve efforts against terrorism financing or face action.
