Masood Azhar has gone missing, says Pakistan minister Hammad Azhar

Pakistan's economic affairs minister Hammad Azhar on Monday said Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar has gone missing from the country ahead of the crucial Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Plenary meeting in Paris.

According to sources, Hammad Azhar stated that the administration could not file a First Investigation Report (FIR) against Masood Azhar as he has apparently gone missing.

However, many find it suspicious that Pakistan's claim comes right before the crucial FATF meeting, which will decide whether Pakistan has followed FATF's recommended guidelines on curbing money laundering and terror financing.
