A judicial review board, comprising judges of the Lahore High Court, rejected a request from the government of Pakistan's Punjab, to extend Saeed's detention by three months.

"The government is ordered to release JuD chief Hafiz Saeed if he is not wanted in any other case," PTI quoted the board as saying.

Saeed is scheduled to be released on Thursday, reported Reuters.

On Tuesday, the province's home department had informed the judicial body that Saeed's release could lead to imposition of international sanctions on Pakistan.

It also said that the Federal Finance Ministry had "some important evidence" against him to justify detention.
