Delhi: Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) ‘founder’ and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) ‘chief’ Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, was seen touring near the international border in Pakistan in Islamkot, Meerpur Khas, Mithi and Kherpur areas, a report said on Tuesday night.
Islamkot, Meerpur Khas, Mithi and Kherpur in Sindh are opposite south west Tanot area of Jaisalmer border.
He has set up terrorist camps in Islamkot and Mithi areas in Pakistan opposite Tanot and Kishangarh areas of Jaisalmer District in Rajasthan, according to Border Security Force (BSF).
On June 29, he was seen in Islamkot, Meerpur Khas, Mithi and Kherpur in Sindh Province of Pakistan opposite south west Tanot area of Jaisalmer border.
The BSF was given directions to be on alert and it believes that Saeed would try to push in terrorists via the Rajasthan border.
These places are barely 15-17 kilometers from the international border, in Pakistan. Saeed has been giving provocative speeches against India and even threatened Hindus staying in Pakistan, asking them to work against India.
Following Saeed’s activities, the BSF has been directed to be cautious and alert along the entire border in Rajasthan.
Sources said that Saeed’s movements near the Rajasthan and Gujarat border were tracked for a month.
Earlier on June 27, Saeed’s movements were traced in Mithi, Bitala and Islamkot areas where he was seen motivating Hindus to send their children to these camps.
On the following day too, there was information of Saeed’s movements in some border villages.
Tightening its noose around Laskhar-e-Toiba, the US had last month added its affiliates, including the JuD, to its list of designated terror organizations and slapped sanctions against two Pakistan-based LeT leaders.
Saeed, who has a habit of spewing venom against India, then also did not spare New Delhi.
“The US government has declared Nazir Ahmed Chaudhry and Muhammad Hussein Gill at the behest of India,” said Saeed in a statement.
The Jamaat-ud-Dawa had blamed “Narendra Modi’s new security team” for the “attack on the Karachi airport”, despite the Tehreek-e-Taliban claiming responsibility.
