(MENAFN- Khaleej Times) The bail application of Lakhvi was heard in the civil court of Mian Azhar Nadeem where the counsel Rizwan Abbasi argued that his client was wrongly booked in the six years old kidnapping case.
Islamabad: A lower court here granted bail to the alleged mastermind of the Mumbai attacks Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi against surety bonds worth Rs200000.
The bail application of Lakhvi was heard in the civil court of Mian Azhar Nadeem where the counsel Rizwan Abbasi argued that his client was wrongly booked in the six years old kidnapping case.
He stated that the case was registered against his client to detain him on pressure from India after the Anti-Terrorism Court granted him bail following a six-year delay in his trial. He observed that evidence recorded so far was based on hearsay. In response the judge granted bail to Lakhvi.
When approached the counsel said the surety bonds would be submitted within three to four days. However the release of his client was difficult at the moment as he was detained in Adiala Jail under Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) for a month. He may be released after the completion of the time period he added.
