Srinagar: Alleged mastermind of the 26/11 Mumbai attack Hafiz Saeed has filed a petition with the United Nations asking the global body to drop his name from the Security Council’s list of designated terrorists.
The development comes just days after his release from house arrest which he had been sentenced to since January 2017.
Saeed vowed to continue his fight for ‘azad Kashmir’ soon after his release by a Pakistani court.
According to media reports, Saeed’s petition to the UN was filed through Lahore-based law firm Mirza and Mirza while he was still under house arrest.
Saeed, who India believes orchestrated the Mumbai 26/11 attacks that claimed 166 lives, was put on the UN’s list of proscribed terrorists on December 10, 2008.
