Hafiz Saeed House Blast News: Pakistani officials carried out searches across Punjab province today, detaining numerous individuals in connection with the explosion outside the Lahore home of Hafiz Saeed, the architect of the 2008 Mumbai terror plot and the leader of the proscribed terror group Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD).
Three people were killed and 21 injured when a bomb exploded outside terrorist Hafiz Saeed’s home in Lahore.
A police picket outside terrorist Hafiz Saeed’s residence at the BOR Society in Lahore’s Johar Town exploded at approximately 11 a.m. on Wednesday, killing three persons and injuring 21 others.
Some of the police officers stationed outside the terrorist’s home were seriously injured. The bomb shattered the windows and damaged the walls of Hafiz Saeed’s home.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the explosion.

Investigators have geo-fenced the area to aid with the blast investigation.
According to the article, investigators have begun geo-fencing the area to aid with the blast investigation.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) or Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is used to construct a virtual geographic border around a region, allowing software to trigger a reaction when a mobile device enters or departs the area.
For his conviction in terror funding charges, Hafiz Saeed has been imprisoned at the high-security Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore. In Pakistan, there were rumours that Hafiz Saeed was inside the home at the time of the bombing.
Condemning the terrorist assault, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari warned that owing to the present government’s misguided Afghan policy, which is led by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Pakistan might see a surge in similar attacks.
According to Pakistan’s Express Tribune newspaper, Bilawal Bhutto told the media at the Parliament House in Islamabad on Wednesday that such incidents could increase because Pakistan’s policy in the Afghan peace process is incorrect, and that some terrorist organisations are active across the border.
“On the floor of the (National) Assembly, I urged that everything the Pakistani government is doing behind the scenes and through the backdoor be brought to the attention of the people’s representatives. The government should explain its strategy to us “He was alluding to Pakistan’s participation in the Afghan Taliban-US peace accord.
In five terror funding trials, Hafiz Saeed, a UN designated terrorist on whom the US has put a USD 10 million bounty, was found guilty and sentenced to 36 years in jail. His sentence is being served at the same time.
Hafiz Saeed is the founder of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) organisation.
The Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), directed by Hafiz Saeed, is the front organisation for the Lashkar-e-Taiba (JuD), which was responsible for the 2008 Mumbai assault, which murdered 166 people, including six Americans.
Hafiz Saeed has been classified as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the US Treasury Department. In December 2008, he was included on the UN Security Council Resolution 1267 list.
The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), a worldwide watchdog on terror financing, has been important in pressuring Pakistan to take action against terrorists operating freely in Pakistan and exploiting territory under its control to carry out strikes in India.
