Islamabad, February 3: Pakistan, under intertiol pressure to curb terrorism and terrorist activities based on its territory, will conduct the trial of Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the alleged mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, on day–to–day basis, local media reported on Tuesday. The Islamabad High Court, whose earlier order for conditiol release of Lakhvi raised the hackles of India, said that the hearing in the trial would be held on daily basis, the Dawn reported. The court’s ruling came on a request from prosecutor Chaudhry Azhar, who said: “This case is crucial. The world’s eyes are on this case. Therefore, it should be heard daily by IHC.”

The hearing in the case will commence Friday. The trial, being conducted by Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), has seen much flip–flop in recent months. (IANS)
