I did not visit areas along LoC: Hafiz Saeed
Lahore: Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed on Saturday claimed he had not visited areas along the Line of Control shortly before a recent spurt in violations of a ceasefire put in place in 2003.
"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, blamed by New Delhi for masterminding the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks that killed 166 people, said those in favour of granting Most Favoured Nation-status to India should "see the real face of India".
