India to move UN for ban on JeM chief


NEW DELHI: Undeterred by scuttling of its previous attempt to get Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar banned by the United Nations, India will again move the world body with the demand, according to its external affairs ministry.

“We will be moving the 1267 Sanctions Committee to also include the name of Masood Azhar on the sanctions list. It is a great anomaly that the organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad is lis­ted, but not its leader,” ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.
