Pakistan on Tuesday arrested 44 members of banned outfits, including a brother of Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar, amid mounting pressure from the global community to rein in the terror groups operating on its soil and curb their financing.
Pakistan claims to arrest Mufti Abdur
Rauf and Hammad Azhar, brother of Masood Azhar. He said a dossier shared by
India with Pakistan last week also contained names of Mufti Abdur Rauf and
Hammad Azhar. Minister of State for Interior
Shehryar Khan Afridi said at a press conference.
He said that the dozzier that came from India included the names of Mufti Abdur Rauf and Hammad Azhar as well. However the action was not taken due to any pressure.
The move came a day after Pakistan on Monday promulgated a law to streamline the procedure for the implementation of the UN sanctions against individuals and organisations.
