26/11 accused Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi detained again

Islamabad, Dec 30: 26/11 accused Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi has been detained yet again just before his release following a Pakistani court's suspension of his detention under a new order.

"Lakhvi has been arrested in another case," an interior ministry spokesman said.

 26/11 accused Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi detained again.
Lakhvi was set to be freed from the Adaila Jail Rawalpindi this morning on the order of the Islamabad High Court after he submitted Rs 1 million surety bond, but just before that the jail superintendent received an order from the government regarding his arrest in another case.

The notification detaining Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the key planner of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, under a public security order was today suspended by the Islamabad High Court.

The suspension orders were issued by Justice Noor ul Haq Qureshi, Geo News reported.

Islamabad Anti-Terrorism Court Judge Zaidi on December 18 had granted bail to Lakhvi in the Mumbai attack case citing lack of evidence against him, but before he could be released from jail, the government detained him for three more months under Maintenance of Public Order (MPO).

He was arrested by Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in February 2009 on the basis of the confessional statement of the lone surviving attacker Ajmal Kasab, who was executed in an Indian jail Nov 21, 2012.
