LAHORE: Hafiz Saifullah Mansoor, one of the close aides of Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed and a founding member of the group, has been killed in a road accident here.
Mansoor was coming to Lahore from Islamabad on his car when it skidded off the road and overturned near Faizpur, a JuD statement said on Thursday.
He died on the spot, while his gunman and driver suffered serious injuries. They were shifted to a hospital in Lahore.
Mansoor, the chairman of Tehreek-e-Azadi Jammu and Kashmir, was considered to be very close to Saeed, the mastermind of the Mumbai terror attack.
JuD chief Saeed will lead Mansoor’s funeral prayers. Saeed and other JuD leaders have expressed grief and sorrow over his death.
Mansoor, a native of Jia Baga, was also part of Hurmat-e-Quran and Hurmat-e-Rasool movements.
