New Delhi, Dec 29 (IANS) The Indian government Monday summoned Pakistan’s High Commissioner Abdul Basit after a Pakistani court suspended the detention order of Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai attack.
Informed sources said that the issue was raised by India both in Delhi and in Islamabad.
They said that Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh summoned the Pakistan High Commissioner and “strongly raised the issue”.
