LAHORE/NEW DELHI: Zaki-ur-Rehman-Lakhvi, accused in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack was granted bail by Pakistan’s anti-terrorism court against a surety of five lakh rupees.

Lakhvi and other members, who are accused of planning the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack were arrested in 2009.

The lone Mumbai attacker, Ajmal Kasab who was captured alive and given death sentence on November 21, 2012, revealed that Lakhvi had recruited him.

The LeT commander, filed a bail along with six others involved in the terror attack at the anti-terrorism court at Rawalpindi.

Lakhvi, Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal, Sadiq, Shahid Jameel Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younas Anjum face charges of planning, funding and executing the attack.

Proceedings of the case did not take place as lawyers were on strike condemning the terror attack.

His release came a day after Jamat-UD-Daawa chief and alleged master mind of the Mumbai attacks, Hafiz Saeed accused India of Peshawar school attack on Tuesday in which over 140 people including 132 children were killed.
