New York: The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has allowed Hafiz Saeed to use his bank account for basic expenses to help his family.
According to reports, Pakistan had approached the UN body with a request to let Saeed use his bank account for personal expenses.
The UN body said in its letter that with no objections being raised to Pakistan's request for Hafiz Saeed's basic expenses, the Chair has approved the appeal.
Complying with the UNSC resolution, Pakistanf had frozen Hafiz Saeed's bank accounts .
The reports said the world body has allowed Saeed to withdraw approximately $1,000 to cover necessary basic living expenses for him and his family.
