Lakhvi to remain in jail for another month

Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, the mastermind of the Mumbai terror attacks, will remain in jail for at least a month, following a

fresh detention order from the Home ministry of Punjab province in Pakistan. On Friday, the Islamabad High Court had ordered Lakhvi’s release, ruling that his detention was illegal.

“The Punjab government today (Saturday) issued the order of Lakhvi’s detention under Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) for a period of 30 days. He will remain detained at the Adiala Jail where he is currently under custody in the Mumbai attack case,” a Home Department official of the Punjab
government said.

On Friday, India had summoned Pakistani envoy Abdul Basit to convey its outrage over Lakhvi’s release following High Court’s order.
