Hafiz Saeed was never arrested in Mumbai case: Shinde

ANIL ANAND

New Delhi, Dec 17: In his reaction to claim by Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik that his country had arrested Hafiz Saeed in connection with Mumbai case, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde has termed it as misleading and maintained that the arrest was in relation to other cases.
 Shinde told Rajya Sabha that copies of FIRs and judgments pertaining to previous arrests of Saeed were made available to India which showed he had not been arrested in relation to the Mumbai attacks.
 "Mr Rehman Malik has been telling us repeatedly that he has arrested Hafiz Saeed thrice and he was let off due to lack of evidence. We had been given to understand that Hafiz Saeed was arrested on charge of being involved in the 26/11 attack," Shinde said.
 "He said he will give FIRs and judgments of three occasions. He has given us papers on detention of Saeed and from the papers it is clear his detention was for other reasons and not for his role in Mumbai terror attack. So I can only say Mr Rehman Malik appears to be misinformed in this case," he said.
 BJP leader Yashwant Sinha raised the issue in Lok Sabha while Ravi Shankar Prasad spoke in Rajya Sabha.
