The Pakistani cleric accused of founding a militant group blamed for the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai has been arrested in his native land.
Authorities in Pakistan say Hafiz Saeed was seized Wednesday in Punjab province near the town of Gujranwala.
Saeed’s Lashkar-e-Taiba group has been accused of carrying out the coordinated attacks on India’s financial capital that left more than 170 people dead and more than 300 injured over the course of four days.
The United States has offered a $10 million reward for any information leading to Saeed’s capture.
Saeed’s arrest comes days before Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s official trip to Washington.
