India is expected to press for ban on Jaish-e Mohammad chief Masood Azhar at the 72nd United Nations General Assembly, indicated Syed Akbaruddin, India's ambassador to the UN. Last year, China had blocked India's efforts for a ban on the terror chief at the UN. But at the summit of BRICS - a block of emerging economies including Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, held in Xiamen earlier this month - China had relaxed its stance and designated Jaish as a terrorist organisation. This, Mr Akbaruddin said, holds out hope for "incremental progress". The clock, he said, was "ticking" for Masood Azhar" and India will "pursue him till the ends of justice are met".
