In this May 23, 2005 file photo, Hafiz Saeed, chief of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa, is seen in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Pakistani police say they plan to arrest hardline cleric Hafiz Saeed accused in the Mumbai terror attacks after filing two criminal cases against him.

Police officer Mohammed Tahir said on Friday that Saeed is accused of illegally holding a public gathering and raising funds for the group he heads, Jamaat-ud-Dawa.

The charges related to speeches he gave last month in the town of Faisalabad in Punjab province.

Pakistan banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa after a U.N. resolution declared it was a front for the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba, which India and the United States believes carried out the Mumbai attacks.

Saeed says the group is a charity.
