Pakistan court adjourns hearing on appeal against bail to Lakhvi

A Pakistani court for the second time in as many weeks adjourned the hearing on Tuesday on government’s appeal against Mumbai attack mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi’s bail in the 26/11 case.

LeT operations commander Lakhvi, 54, was summoned by the Islamabad High Court’s two-member bench headed by Justice Shaukat Siddiqui on January 6 to appear before it on the government’s appeal against his bail in the 26/11 case. Last week also the hearing in the case was adjourned without any progress in the case. “Today no proceedings in the government’s plea against bail to Lakhvi were held as the Islamabad High Court (IHC) took up the case of Mumtaz Qadri, the policeman who killed Punjab governor Salman Taseer, in its place,” Prosecution Chief Chaudhry Azhar said.

Azhar, who is also a special prosecutor of the Federal Investigation Agency, said the next hearing of the case would be fixed by the court office.
