ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Saturday challenged Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi’s bail in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
On December 18,2014, an anti-terrorism court (ATC) granted bail to Lakhvi, the leader of the banned outfit Lashkhar-e-Taiba (LeT), who was allegedly involved in planning, financing and executing the attacks on the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai way back in 2008.
Special prosecutor FIA Chaudhry Muhammad Azhar challenged his bail in the high court and requested it to suspend the ATC’s order. Chaudhry Muhammad Azhar said there was sufficient evidence against the suspect in the case and that the trail court ignored it while permitting him bail.
The IHC will take up the issue on January 5.
