I DID NOT visit areas near LoC: Hafiz Saeed

January 12, 2013 18:44 IST

Lashkar-e-Tayiba founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed on Saturday claimed that he had not visited areas along the Line of Control shortly before a recent spurt in violations of the ceasefire between India and Pakistan.

"I did not visit the LoC where the Indian soldiers were killed," Saeed, who now heads the Jamaat-ud-Dawah, said in a statement.

Expressing 'surprise' at Indian Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde's remarks that he had visited the LoC, Saeed claimed, "India has no proof about my presence there. The Indian claim is totally baseless".

"If India proves my presence at the LoC, then I am ready to accept its other allegations (against me)," he said.

Saeed, the mastermind of the 26/11 terror attacks, said those in favour of granting Most Favoured Nation-status to India should "see the real face of India".
