Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the alleged mastermind of 2008 Mumbai terror blasts has been detained on the orders of the Home Ministry of Pakistan’s Punjab province.

“It was after pressure from the US authorities, Pakistani government has decided to keep Lakhvi under arrest. ” sources said.

The judicial decision to release Lakhvi was severely criticized by both India and the US. As a response to the release order, Indian External Affairs Ministry had summoned Abdul Basit, Pakistan`s High Commissioner to India and sought an explanation for the terrorist’s release. US too had put pressure on the Pakistani Government to keep Lakhvi under arrest.

Earlier, Lakhvi’s appeal against his third detention order was accepted by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday, ordering his immediate release. Lakhvi was granted bail in both cases against him, the Mumbai blasts case and the six-year-old case pertaining to the kidnapping of an Afghan national, Dwan, the Pakistani news agency reported.

On March 2, the IHC directed the Pakistan government not to register any new case against Lakhvi without informing the court.
