New Delhi: Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed had deliberations with intelligence agency of Pakistan, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), on the issue of terrorist Mohammed Naved Yakub, who along with his accomplice Noman alias Momin had ambushed a Border Security Force (BSF) contingent in Jammu and Kashmir's Udhampur district last week, a report said on Friday.
Naved is currently under the custody of India's premier terror investigation agency NIA.

Pakistan State Minister for Interior Baleeghur Rehman on Thursday said: “The JuD has been put on the list of suspected organisations and appropriate action will be taken against it if it (the organisation) is found involved in any activity other than charity work.”
Two terrorists ambushed and killed two BSF troopers on the Srinagar-Jammu highway in Udhampur district last Wednesday. After one of the terrorists was killed, the other, now identified as Naved, fled to a village and took shelter in a house but was caught by three villagers.
