Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa and its wing Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation have been formally placed in the list of banned organisations by Pakistan. 

The move comes, a day after Indian media reported that the two outfits continue to be only on the watchlist.

The JuD is believed to be the front organisation for the LeT which is responsible for carrying out the Mumbai attack that killed 166 people. It had been declared as a foreign terrorist organisation by the United States in June 2014.

US Treasury Department has designated JuD chief Saeed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist  since 2012 and it has also offered a 10 million dollar reward for information that brings Saeed to justice.
