Lahore: Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed has challenged the order of Pakistan’s Punjab government to extend his detention for 60 more days.

The Punjab home department issued an order on July 28 under which the detention of Saeed and his four aides — Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain — was extended for another 60 days.

Apparently frustrated with not getting a decision from the Lahore high court that had on June 7 reserved his petition against his first detention order on January 30, Saeed on Wednesday filed a fresh petition challenging the detention order.

The petition says: “There is no evidence whatsoever that the petitioners are planning to spread chaos in the country or that they have planned violent demonstrations. It says the government in the impugned detention order has only shown apprehension against th petiotioners”.
