Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, the man accused of orchestrating the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in 2008 that killed over 160 people was released on bail by a Pakistani High Court this week. Last December, when the courts had ordered his release, the government of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif used legal loopholes to keep him from being released.
India believes that in addition to being the mastermind of the Mumbai attacks he is also the operational head of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a terrorist group. This has increased tensions between India and Pakistan who have in the last few months engaged in the worst cross-border violence seen in a decade. India and Pakistan have fought three wars since independence in 1947.
