NEW DELHI (TIP): India has submitted a formal request to the United Nations Committee 1267, seeking inclusion of the name of Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar on the sanctions’ list, said government sources.

“I can also confirm to you that we will be moving the 1267 Committee to also include the name of Masood Azhar on the sanctions list. It is a great anomaly that the organization Jaish-e-Mohammad is listed but not its leader,” said Vikas Swarup, Official Spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, on Thursday.

“We have already given a list of terrorists affiliated to Al Qaeda, Taliban and other terrorist groups to the 1267 Committee. At this stage it would not be prudent to disclose anything further as to the names of these people because, as you know, this is a part of a process now,” he added.

Previously, India’s move to get Masood Azhar banned by the UN was scuttled by China.
