Pakistan snubs India over Hafiz Saeed issue

NEW DELHI: India can pursue the case of JuD chief Hafiz Saeed in a global court if it has proof against him, Pakistan PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said.

Defending the Lahore High Court's release order, Abbasi said charges against Saeed are mere “allegations” and India hasn't been able to give evidence.

"Prosecute him internationally if there is substance to these charges ─ these are accusations only. No evidence has been provided by India."

"MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar did not respond to requests for comments on 'India providing evidence on Saeed' to Pakistan," he said in an interview.

India has accused Hafiz Saeed of masterminding the deadly terror attack in Mumbai in 2008 in which more than 200 people were killed.

The gun-battle between the militants and the Indian security forces had lasted for nearly three days as the country stood in a state of shock and horror in Mumbai.
