LAHORE: 

The issue of the house arrest of the Hafiz Saeed by government has become another headache for the government as Lahore High Court has posed anger over the government for non compliance in the case.

A division bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday gave one last chance to the federal government to submit the report of a review board looking into the extension of house arrest of Jamatud Dawa’s chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and his aides.

Saeed and his aides Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdur Rehman Abid, Qazi Kashif Hussain and Abdullah Ubaid, who have been under house arrest since January, had filed the petition at the high court challenging their detention.

While hearing the case on Thursday, the LHC bench accepted the request made by the federal government’s counsel and gave the government another two days to submit the review board’s decision. It had done the same of May 29.
