NEW DELHI: India will yet again move the United Nations to include the name of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Maulana Masood Azhar on the sanctions list to ban him.

"We will be moving to 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-Mohammed is listed but not its leader," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.

He also noted that India has already submitted to the UN's Sanction Committee a fresh list of 11 terrorists from Pakistan -based terror groups affiliated to Al Qaeda, Taliban and other outfits responsible for terrorism in the country.

“We are awaiting details from Pakistan about the composition of the Special Investigation Team and the itinerary of the visit. The two foreign secretaries are in touch,” he added.

On February 18, a fresh submission of 11 individuals and one organisation linked to terrorism in India was submitted.
