VIDEO:' COURT IN PAKISTAN GRANTS BAIL TO MASTERMIND OF 2008 MUMBAI TERRORIST ATTACKS '

#AceWorldNews – PAKISTAN:Dec.29:A court in Pakistan has suspended a detention order against the alleged mastermind of the Mumbai terrorist attacks in 2008, reported by New York Times. Mr. Shah, the technology chief of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistani terror group, and fellow conspirators used Google Earth to show militants the routes to their targets in the city. He set up an Internet phone system to disguise his location by routing his calls through New Jersey.

​Mr Lakhvi has been in Pakistani custody since 2008.

Shortly before an assault that would kill 166 people, including six Americans, Mr. Shah searched online for a Jewish hostel and two luxury hotels, all sites of the eventual carnage.

Zaki-ur-Rahman Lakvi is being held in prison, while bail is posted, though he could possibly be released according to a local prosecutor – a move, which would infuriate neighbouring India.

The court said there was not enough evidence to keep Lakvi behind bars, AP reported.

Another hearing has been set for January 15 and if the Interior Ministry comes up with new evidence, the judge in the case says he could reverse his decision.
