Hafiz Saeed, the Jamaat ud-Dawa chief and mastermind of the 2008 attacks in Mumbai, has been placed under house arrest in Lahore, Pakistani media reported late on Monday.

The JuD is most likely to be banned and its leadership may also be arrested, the Pakistan Today quoted a Dunya News report as saying. Media reports said Saeed was detained at Lahore’s Jamia Masjid Al Qadsia Chowburji.

Apart from Saeed, four others have reportedly been placed under house arrest. They were identified as JuD founding member Zafar Iqbal, editor of JuD magazine Kazi Kashif Nawaz and members Abdu Rehman Abid and Abdullah Ubaid. All five will reportedly be produced in court within 24 hours.

Three days ago, Punjab's Ministry of Interior had included names of Saeed and four others — Abdullah Ubaid, Zafar Iqbal, Abdur Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Niaz — in the Watch List as per UNSC 1267 Sanctions and ordered their preventive detention.

Saeed, who is also the founder of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, carries a $10-million bounty on his head.

PTI quoted JuD member Ahmed Nadeem as saying that Saeed "is at Masjid-e-Qadsia Chauburji and a heavy contingent of police has surrounded the JuD headquarters." "The commanding police officer told us that he has with him the house arrest order of the JuD chief issued by the Punjab Home Department," Nadeem told PTI.

JuD is the front for the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terror outfit which is responsible for numerous terror attacks in India, including the Mumbai terror strike of November 26, 2008, which was masterminded by Saeed.

wow... that's a welcome move by Pakistan :clap

Trump effect :huh

Hope, now India-Pakistan relations start to improve :win
House arrest is like a joke. Anyways, a welcome move. Somebody needs to ask them how and why did they house arrest an social worker, as claimed by pakistan earlier when India had asked to put him behind the bars?
