Interpol Chasing LeT Chief Saeed and Mumbai 'Mastermind' Lakhvi

The Hindu and other outlets report that Interpol has issued a red notice for two individuals;

NEW DELHI: The Interpol on Tuesday night issued Red Corner Notices (RCN) against Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder chief, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, and mastermind of the Mumbai terror attacks, Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi...

Saeed had allegedly provided training to terrorists between 2007 and 2008 at Muridke (LeT headquarters), Manshera, Muzzafarabad, Azizabad, and Paanch Teni in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

In December last year, the United Nations Security Council imposed sanctions on the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), the front organisation of the banned LeT, declaring it a terrorist outfit, and labelled Saeed and Lakhvi as terrorists. The Council asked all its member countries to freeze their assets and impose a travel ban and arms embargo against them.
