The Pakistan Supreme Court (SC) has sought details about exchange of accused people under the extradition treaties signed with different countries, including the US.

A two-judge SC bench headed by Justice Mushir Alam issued the directives on Monday while hearing a case of Talha Haroon, an American of Pakistan origin accused of planning a number of terrorist attacks in New York in 2016, reports Dawn news.

The Supreme Court also restrained extradition of the accused to the US till a final decision on the case and asked Attorney General Khalid Jawed Khan to assist the court in the matter.

According to the investigation carried out by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Talha Haroon was in Pakistan in April 2016 and planned multiple terrorist attacks in New York City.

The FBI claimed that with the support of the Islamic State terror group, he wanted to carry out attacks in New York in June 2016.

In August, the Islamabad High Court had paved the way for extradition of a Pakistani-American terror suspect by relaxing tough conditions set for his handing over to the US authorities.
