Mumbai attack mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, who was granted bail, has now been detained under the Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) at Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail, a media report said Friday.
A government source told Dawn that the government has also decided to appeal in superior courts against Lakhvi’s bail.
