Pak court bars govt from booking Lakhvi in any other case

Pak court bars govt from booking Lakhvi in any other case
A Pakistani court on Monday barred the government from booking Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the 2008 Mumbai attack mastermind, in any other case without its permission after his counsel argued that “false” cases might be slapped against him to keep him in jail.

Islamabad High Court (IHC) judge Noorul Haq Qureshi today took up the plea of 55-year-old Lakhvi against his detention under a public security act and issued a notice to the government for a reply on March 5.

On the request of Lakhvi’s counsel Raja Rizwan Abbasi, the judge restrained the government from filing any another case against him without bringing the matter into its notice.

Abbasi informed the court that the government was planning to register another case against his client like it did when he was granted bail in the Mumbai attack case.
