Lashkar-e-Toiba commander and 26/11 Mumbai attack accused Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi has been granted bail by Pakistan's Anti-Terrorism court today for lack of evidence.

Pakistan's move of granting bail to 26/11 accused Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi stands out starkly, given the widespread condemnation and pledges being made to fight terrorism in the aftermath of the blood-curdling Taliban attack on Peshawar's Army Public School.

Lakhvi and six others had filed bail applications yesterday even as lawyers were observing strike to condemn the terrorist attack on Peshawar school.

All seven were accused of planning, financing and helping to execute the carnage in Mumbai in 2008.

The anti-terrorism court granted bail to Lakhvi on the surety of two bonds worth Rs 500,000 each.

However, the Pakistani government claimed the bail was a technical error on their part and officials said they would oppose it.

According to a report, the FIA (Federal Investigation Agency) prosecutor "disagreed with the bail request, however Lakhvi's advocate Rizwan Abbasi stood before the court as the bail was approved by the court".

Lamenting the loss of lives of innocent school children in Peshawar school attack, Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif had also pledged to crack down on terrorists in a speedy manner and hence had lifted the moratorium on death penalty in terror case. In line with the ban, President Mamnoon Hussain today rejected mercy appeal by 17 convicted of terrorism and they would soon be executed.

However, the granting of bail to one of the key accused in 26/11 attack cases negates Pakistan's power-packed vows to eliminate terrorism from its soil that keeps on popping its ugly head to strike its own people.

Lakhvi was arrested by Pakistan after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and has since been serving jail in Rawalpindi.
