26/11 main accused Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi granted bail by Pakistani court

Lashkar-e-Taiba commander and 26/11 main accused, Lakhvi was released on a bail of Rs5,00,000 in the Mumbai attacks case

 

Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi was granted bail by the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Islamabad today, in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks case. Lakhvi has been asked to furnish a surety of Rs5,00,000 as condition for his bail.
 
While the Federal Investigation Agency, which is investigating the case in Pakistan, opposed the bail, the court cited insufficient evidence to detain Lakhvi any further. 
 
Strong reactions against the bail came in from all across India. “After the Peshawar attack, providing bail to a 26/11 accused is unfortunate,” Home Minister Rajnath Singh said. The Indian government and the Ministry for External Affairs was said to be working on a strong response with the Indian mission in Islamabad in the light of this latest development.
 
Seven people are being prosecuted in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks case and have been detained in Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi. These seven accused are, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal, Hamad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jameel Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younis Anjum.
 
The Dawn newspaper had earlier in April reported that the trial had been delayed and had come to a standstill because of security fears expressed by the ATC judge.
 
In the wake of the horrific terrorist attack that killed over 130 children in Peshawar, this release of Lakhvi raises serious questions on the seriousness of the Pakistani establishment in fighting terror on all fronts, as stated by Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif.
