The BBC reported on 10 April that Pakistani authorities released from prison Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the alleged LeT planner of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, which included attacks on two hotels: the Taj Mahal and the Oberoi Trident.

Pakistan’s High Court issued Lakhvi’s release, asserting his detention since December 2014 was unlawful since he had been granted bail in December. India’s government decried his release, asserting it was bad for India-Pakistan relations and public safety. Lakhvi and several LeT cohorts are still supposed to face trial in the coming months.
