Lahore High Court on Tuesday refused to entertain a petition filed against detention of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed .

Saeed and his four aides were put under house arrest on January 30 for 3 months for activities to ‘harm peace and security’. Their organisations – Falah-e-Insaaniat Foundation and the JuD – were also included in the watch-list.

The LHC judge Justice Erum Sajjad Gul held that the petitioner is not an aggrieved party, and, therefore, has no right to file this petition before the court.

Appearing before the court, the petitioner – Sarfaraz Hussain Advocate – submitted that the LHC registrar office had put an objection on his petition by declaring it as lacking locus standi. He requested the court to overrule the objection.
