US imposes sanctions on Pak-based extremists, entity

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
The US has imposed sanctions on Pakistan-based extremists and an organisation run by Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s JuD group as part of an effort to disrupt their leadership and fund-raising networks.
These sanctions seek to disrupt the financial support networks of terrorists based in Pakistan who have provided support to the Taliban, al-Qaeda, ISIS, and LeT for their terrorist activities.

Meanwhile, a UN committee has condemned the “widespread practice of torture” in Pakistan by police, the military and intelligence agencies.

It has also called on Islamabad to implement urgent legal reforms which could be applied without exception, including the army, which is regularly accused of abusing its powers. Pakistan’s human rights body has welcomed the UN move.
