Islamabad: Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed continues to look after the affairs of the banned militant outfit Jamat-ud-Dawah (JuD) right from the closed quarters of the prison he is currently jailed for his alleged role in terror financing charges earlier this year.
The latest instance of Saeed using his influence despite being behind bars is in the case of Salahuddin Ayubi, a mentally challenged man who died in police custody last month, according to a report by BBU Urdu.
Ayubi’s father Muhammad Afzal said he had forgiven the three police officials charged with the murder of his son after Saeed intervened in the matter and brokered an agreement. Saeed has operated openly across Pakistan despite a $10 million bounty offered for him by the US. The LeT and JuD too have continued their fund-raising and recruitment activities despite pressure from the FATF and Western powers.
