Six important notes were handed over to Pakistan by the institution, which included talk of taking action against two wanted terrorists of India, Masood Azhar and Hafiz Saeed.
According to officials, the sudden disappearance of the names of more than 4,000 terrorists from the official list has also increased the chances of remaining in Pakistan’s gray list.

Azhar, Saeed and Lakhvi have been involved in several attacks, including the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and the bombing of a CRPF bus in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama last year.

The court had sentenced the two-and-a-half-and-a-half to five years imprisonment in both cases. Five days later, Pakistan claimed that Masood Azhar, the leader of the terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed (JEM), had gone missing from the captivity of the Pakistan Army.
FATF warned Pakistan in February
