• However, the board refused to allow the same in the detention of his four aides. The 30-day detention will be applicable from October 24. Saeed's aides - Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain may walk out free on the expiry of their September 25 detention order if they are not detained in any other case. Saeed and his four aides were presented before the provincial judicial review board amid high security in the Lahore High Court. The government may arrest Saeed's four aides in any other case on expiry of their detention period in last week of this month, the official said. Under the law, the government can detain a person for up to 90 days under different charges but for an extension to that detention it needs approval from a judicial review board. Last Saturday the Punjab Home Department had withdrawn its request from federal judicial review board to seek extension to detention of Saeed and others under "Anti- Terrorism Act". On January 31, Saeed and four others were detained by the Punjab government for 90 days under preventative detention under the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997. However, the last two extensions were made on the 'public safety law'. The Jamat-ud-Dawah (JuD) has already been declared as a foreign terrorist organisation by the United States in June 2014. The JuD chief carries a reward of USD 10 million announced by the US for his role in terror activities.
  • It was a perfect display of attacking hockey as the Indian strikers toyed with the Malaysian defence with short passes, one-touch ball delivery to pump five beautiful field goals. India scored five field goals through Akashdeep Singh (15th minute), S K Uthappa (24th), Gurjant Singh (33rd), S V Sunil (40th) and Sardar Singh (60th), while Harmanpreet converted a penalty corner in the 19th minute. Malaysia's goals came from the sticks of Razie Rahim (50th) and Ramadan Rosli (59th). For Malaysia, who looked impressive with an all-win record so far, this was their first loss in the event. By virtue of the win, the Indians have also avenged their twin defeats -- 0-1 in Azlan Shah Cup and 2-3 in Hockey World League Semi-finals in London -- earlier this year. The win propelled India to the top of Super 4 stage after they drew 1-1 against Korea on Wednesday. Earlier in the day, Korea and Pakistan played out a 1-1 draw in another Super 4 match. The Indians, who found it difficult to breach Korea's resolute defence, came out with purpose and dominated the proceedings. After wasting a penalty corner, Lalit Upadhayay shot off Ramandeep Singh's pass was saved by the stretched legs of Malaysian goalkeeper Kumar Subramaniam. But India took the lead seconds before the end of first quarter when Akashdeep found the net with a powerful shot after receiving an inch-perfect pass from skipper Manpreet Singh from the halfway mark. Tengku Tajuddin then missed an easy chance for Malaysia. Malaysia tried to dictate the pace of the game in the second quarter and earned two penalty corners, but wasted both. Harmanpreet doubled India's lead in the 19th minute with a powerful flick off the side's third penalty corner. Uthappa made it 3-0 with a slap shot as Sunil's pass landed before his stick after a deflection from a Malaysian defender, going into the half time with a comfortable lead. After a quiet third quarter, Gurjant extended India's lead from close range when he was set up by Uthappa, Lalit and Akashdeep's combined play in the right flank. Sunil then made it 5-0 with a diving deflection from Gujrant's reverse hit cross. The Malaysians earned as many as eight penalty corners in the match, but could utilise just one through Razie. Towards the end, the talismanic Sardar Singh also registered his name in the scoresheet with a reverse hit goal after being set up by Akashdeep. India will play arch-rivals Pakistan in their third and final Super 4 match on Saturday.
