UNITED NATIONS, May 3 � A UNSC committee has assured India that it will take up the issue of Mumbai terror attack mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi at its next meeting, after India expressed concern that the LeT commander�s release from a Pakistani jail violates the provisions of the global body, reports PTI.
India�s Ambassador to the UN, Asoke Mukerji, had written a letter to the Chair of the UNSC Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee Ambassador Jim McLay, expressing concern over Lakhvi�s release and said it violates the provisions of the committee concerning Al Qaeda and associated individuals and entities.
India also pointed out that as a listed terrorist, Lakhvi can neither receive or give money since all his assets and financial resources have to be frozen. Any bail money posted for Lakhvi is also a violation of the provisions of the sanctions committee since he is listed terrorist.
Acknowledging India�s concerns, McLay has responded to India�s letter and assured that the matter will be discussed at the next meeting of the committee, sources here told PTI.
The next meeting of the committee is expected to take place in the next few days.
