Saeed was placed under house arrest in January while Sharif was still prime minister, a move that drew praise from India, long furious at Saeed's continued freedom in Pakistan. Saeed has repeatedly denied involvement but had previously been detained twice briefly following the attacks. "The Pakistani government should make sure that he is arrested and charged for his crimes". "Since 2012, the United States has offered a USA $10 million reward for information that brings Saeed to justice", it said.
While some in Pakistan may wish to see Mr Saeed placed on trial, there is widespread suspicion among Indian and USA officials that he still retains close links to the country's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), which has been long blamed for sponsoring numerous cross-border attacks on Indian targets.
His release came after a panel of judges dismissed a government request to continue his house arrest, which ended Thursday.
Saeed ran the Jamaat-Ud-Dawa organization (Party of the Faith), which is thought to be a front for the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba militant group. This was following the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks which claimed 166 lives, including six American nationals.
Meanwhile, India has termed the release "an attempt by the Pakistani system to mainstream proscribed terrorists".
