New Delhi, Dec 19 (The News) 

Pakistan has made a mockery of its pledge to fight terrorism by allowing bail to 26/11 mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Friday.

Speaking in the Lok Sabha, she said: "Pakistan had given an assurance to fight terror in all forms. But by this, it has made a mockery of it.

"We reject the argument that the evidence against Lakhvi, who is the mastermind

of 26/11, was not sufficient.

"Pakistan had six years time to collect evidence. It was their duty. We demand from Pakistan that this decision should be overturned."

India has said that Lakhvi, as the former operational commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, was among those who masterminded the Mumbai terror attack that left 166 people dead in 2008.
