23 November, 2017, 00:43
A court in Pakistan has ordered authorities to release from house arrest an Islamist cleric whom the United States accuses of plotting the 2008 attacks on India's financial capital of Mumbai.
The Judicial Review Board rejected a request from the government of Pakistan to extend Saeed's detention by three months.
"His previous detention for 30 days is over, which means he would be released tomorrow", Sahil was quoted as saying.
The JuD is believed to be the front organisation for the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) which is responsible for carrying out the 2008 Mumbai attack.
The board's order paves the way for Saeed's release.
Hafiz Saeed is scheduled to be released on Thursday.
