"Saeed will be a free man in less than an hour as the Punjab government has decided not to detain him further in any other case".

"I was detained for 10 months only to stop my voice for Kashmir", Saeed told his supporters who gathered outside his residence to celebrate his release.

The banned JuD head, who carries a bounty of USD10 million announced by the United States for his role in terror activities, has been under detention since January this year.

A three-member board passed the order for his release when the provincial and federal governments failed to bring any convincing evidence against Saeed. He is a terrorist leader designated by both the United Nations and the United States.

"The US is aware of media reports that Pakistan (court) ordered release of Lashkar-e-Taiba leader Hafiz Saeed from house arrest", a State Department spokesperson told PTI.

His latest stint under house arrest was not the first for Mr. Saeed, though he has repeatedly avoided long-term detention or serious legal charges.

"Once he gets out and restarts all his activities and starts his work again, then we will announce what his plans for the political party are", Mr. Awan, of Jamaat-ud-Dawa, said on Wednesday when asked if Mr. Saeed would openly lead the new political party after his release.

Speaking on the Kulbhusan Yadav case, Raveesh Kumar said that there was a long standing request from Jadhav's mother to visit Pakistan to meet her son and India has responded positively to the offer by Pakistan to arrange meeting of Kulbhushan Jadhav with his wife.

Lawyers of the JBA assembled at the High Court complex and raised slogans and tore Pakistani flags and later set them afire.

India has maintained that Saeed enjoys the support of the Inter-Services Intelligence and his a free spirit in Pakistan. The U.S. has also declared JuD a global terrorist organization, condemning it as a front for the outlawed Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) group blamed for carrying out the Mumbai carnage that left 166 people dead.

According to members of the JuD, the organization is a charity group but the US considers it a front for the Pakistan-based LeT militant group.
