RAWALPINDI An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) here on Saturday reserved its verdict on the bail plea of Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, the alleged mastermind of Mumbai attacks. The court adjourned the hearing after both prosecution and defence in the case concluded their arguments. The court deferred the hearing till August 30 (Monday) to announce the decision on the bail application of Lakhvi. During the hearing, Advocate Khawaja Sultan Ahmed representing Lakhvi urged for the post-arrest bail of his client as inordinate delay was being caused by the prosecution. He maintained that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had no evidence against Lakhvi to prove that he planned and helped the November 2008 attacks in India. Khawaja Sultan said that the prosecution had cited five witnesses - all policemen - saying Lakhvi was the operational commander of the banned Lashkar-e-Tayyaba and had no independent evidence against the accused. He argued before the court that Lakhvi - who previously has not been convicted - had been languishing in the jail for one year and eight months, while no prosecution witness had been recorded and more time would be taken for bringing Ajmal Kasab and the Magistrate who recorded his statement in the country. The lawyer said there were about 200 prosecution witnesses including the five policemen who had not indicated that Lakhvi sent or trained the alleged terrorists killed and captured in India. On the other hand, defence lawyer Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ahmed argued before the court that the delay was not being caused by the investigators and there was ample evidence and witnesses to convict Lakhvi for training and sending the terrorists to India. Besides Lakhvi six other men including Hammad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jamil Riaz, Younas Anjum, Jamil Ahmed, Mazhar Iqbal and Abdul Majid were facing the trial in Adiala Jail, Rawalpindi, for their alleged involvement in the Mumbai attacks.
