FIA challenges Lakhvi’s bail in IHC

ISLAMABAD: Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) here on Saturday filed an appeal before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) seeking cancellation of the grant of post-arrest bail to Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, an alleged mastermind of the Mumbai terror attacks of November 26, 2008.
An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) Judge Syed Kausar Abbas Zaidi on December 18, 2014 granted post-arrest bail to Lakhvi against one million surety bond. Later, federal government issued Lakhvi’s detention orders under section 3 of the Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) that were also suspended by an IHC bench on December 29, 2014.
FIA in its recent petition through its special public prosecutor adopted before the IHC that prosecution in terrorism related cases was not an easy task and delay in prosecution of the Mumbai terror suspects could not be attributed to the FIA prosecution alone.
Delay in prosecution of this case could be numerous applications before the ATC by the terror suspects, FIA in its petition said.
