Saeed had been under house arrest for the past 10 months since January but was set free after the Pakistan government chose to not keep in custody him further in links with any case against him.
Pakistan has been detaining and freeing Saeed off and on since the attack and he and four of his aides were put under house arrest in Lahore in January.
While Saeed was under house arrest, his JuD charity launched a political party, the Milli Muslim League (MML), which has won thousands of votes in by-elections. His aides had been released earlier. He used the release order to support his claims of "innocence".

In a video message after the court decision, Saeed claimed that he was detained because of his associations with the disputed Kashmir region.
