26/11 Mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi Again Granted Bail


Islamabad, Jan 09: A Pakistan civil court granted bail to 26/11 mastermind and Lashkar-e-Toiba operative Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, paving a way for release from jail, despite the government intervention and pressure from India.

The LeT operative was granted bail on Thursday against a surety of Rs 2 lakh.

The Pakistan government had detained him in a six years old kidnapping case, after the Islamabad high court granted him bail in a terrorism case.

Lakhvi's counsel Rizwan Abbasi argued that his client was booked in a six years old kidnapping case. The most wanted terrorist is likely to submit the surety within 3-4 days but his release seems difficult as he is also detained in Adiala Jail under Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) for a month.
