Pakistan Releases Masood Azhar From Jail Secretly


Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar, who was arrested a month before, has once again been released secretly by Pakistan. The intelligence agencies have warned the Indian government that Pakistan has enhanced the deployment of troops along its border areas in Rajasthan and along the Sialkot-Jammu sectors.

The IB input also reportedly warned of possible terror attacks in India. The report says that the Indian security forces along these border areas have been put on high alert following the intelligence inputs.

India, who declared Azhar as a terrorist, was arrested by Pakistan in a bid to show the international community that it was taking decisive actions against terror emanating from its soil. Staring at a possible Financial Action Task Force (FATF) blacklisting Islamabad had, even earlier, detained and later released the JeM chief. The Asia Pacific Group of FATF blacklisted Pakistan over non-compliance in actions last month against terror financing.
