Lahore:  The Lahore High Court will hear Hafiz Saeed's petition. The court says cases registered against him are baseless.

The petition, filed in the Lahore High Court by Saeed's lawyer A K Dogar, said that the two FIRs registered against the JuD chief in Faisalabad last week were "without lawful authority and of no legal effect".

The petition also claimed that the Indian government has been "pressing" Pakistan to take action against Saeed even though there is "no charge" against him.

It said two "fake" cases had been registered against Saeed on baseless allegations and police cannot book him constitutionally or legally under such charges.

A Division Bench of the Lahore High Court on September 28 accepted Hafiz Saeed's petitions for quashing the cases registered against him and issued notices to the Punjab provincial government and police officials.
