India today said Hafiz Saeed's request for removal of his name from a list that bars him from leaving Pakistan is a matter concerning him and his handlers there.

"It is between Hafiz Saeed and his handlers in Pakistan. Our view is that he is internationally proscribed terrorist who had engaged in numerous acts of terrorism not only directed at India... And he needs to be brought to justice as soon as possible," MEA Spokesperson Vikas Swarup said. PTI
