A Pakistani anti-terrorism court conducting the trial of seven suspects charged with involvement in the Mumbai attacks on Saturday reserved till Monday its decision on a bail petition filed by LeT operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.

Defence and prosecution lawyers had presented their arguments on the bail application during two previous hearings and Judge Malik Muhammad Akram Awan, who was conducting the trial within Rawalpindi's Adiala Jail for security reasons, heard the final arguments on Saturday.

Judge Awan then reserved his decision on the bail application till Monday, defence lawyers said.

In his petition, Lakhvi has said that he should be freed on bail as prosecutors had been unable to present any "solid evidence" linking him to the 2008 Mumbai attacks during the nearly 20 months that he has been in jail.
