  |   India News

The Pakistani state has cracked its whip on a number of members of proscribed organizations, including detaining Abdul Rauf Asghar aka Rauf Asghar, the brother of JeM chief Masood Azhar.

44 individuals, under-observation members of proscribed organizations, have been taken in preventive detention for investigation, after a high level meeting by the Ministry of Interior, Pakistan. Hammad Azhar, a close relative of Masood Azhar is also among the individuals detained.

Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Khan Afridi said a dossier shared by India with Pakistan last week also contained names of Mufti Abdur Rauf and Hammad Azhar. He, however, said the action was not taken due to any pressure.

The minister also said the action would be taken against all the proscribed organisations under the National Action Plan, and the crackdown will continue for two weeks and actions against the arrested members will be taken on the basis of evidence.
