Lakhvi, 55, was released from Adiala Jail Rawalpindi on April 10 after securing a bail. The six other accused -- Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal, Hamad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jameel Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younis Anjum -- have been lodged in Adiala Jail for nearly six years for planning and executing the attack in November 26, 2008 that killed 166 people.

Ten other co-accused, said to be either trainers or facilitators of the terrorists who launched the attacks in Mumbai, have been declared 'proclaimed offenders or fugitives' by the anti-terrorism court.
