Vote counting for the general elections is underway in Pakistan, with speculation surrounding the final outcome. Meanwhile, reports have surfaced regarding Talha Saeed, the son of the mastermind behind the Mumbai attacks, Hafiz Saeed.

Talha Saeed, son of the UN-designated terrorist Hafiz Saeed, was a candidate from Lahore constituency in Pakistan.

It's worth noting that Talha Saeed has been designated as a terrorist by India since last year. He holds a senior position within the terror organization Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and serves as the head of its clerical wing.

A candidate contesting independently, supported by the former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan's party PTI, secured victory in the Lahore constituency.

In January of this year, in response to reports of Talha's plan to participate in the general elections, India condemned this move, cautioning that it could lead to significant consequences for regional security.

"The integration of extremist terrorist groups into Pakistan's political landscape is not a new phenomenon and has been a longstanding aspect of state policy. Such developments pose grave implications for regional security. Naturally, we will remain vigilant and closely monitor all developments that may impact our national security," stated the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in a statement.
