The House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday refuted US President Donald Trump's tweet on UN-proscribed terrorist Hafiz Saeed, denying his claim that Pakistan was searching for Saeed for ten years.

The legislative committee highlighted in a tweet that the 26/11 terror attack mastermind had been living freely in Pakistan and there was no search operation underway for ten years, as stated by the US president.

"FYI Pakistan wasn't searching for him for 10 years. He's been living freely and was arrested and released in December 2001, May 2002, October 2002, and August 2006 (twice), December 2008, September 2009, and January 2017. Let's hold the (applause) until he's convicted," the committee tweeted.
