Six accused of raising funds for terrorists in Pakistan

 

Six people have been arrested for allegedly collecting funds for militant outfits Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) in Pakistan’s Punjab province, as security forces have launched a crackdown on terror financing after mounting pressure from the global community.

The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of Punjab arrested the six members of the proscribed organizations, in various parts of the province, for collecting funds for financing terrorism, a CTD spokesman said in a statement.

The CTD said those arrested were collecting funds for terror financing for the proscribed organizations — the JeM and LeJ.

“No member of any proscribed organization is allowed to collect funds for financing terrorism and extremism under the law of land,” the CTD said in a statement.
