About Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi

Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi is Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT)'s operations commander.

Media reports in May 2010 say that Lakhvi is likely to walk free like Saeed with the Pakistan Supreme Court's decision to uphold the Lahore High Court's verdict acquitting Saeed of all terror charges may have come as a shocker for many, particularly India, but legal experts believe that the decision comes as no surprise, as the prosecution was hampered by a lack of admissible evidence.
