Rajya Sabha on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution condemning the grant of bail to Mumbai attack mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.

The House asked Pakistan to ensure that no perpetrator of any terrorist activity goes unpunished.

Chairperson Hamid Ansari said the House expresses its grave concern at the numerous delays in the

prosecution of Lakhvi and the apathetic attitude of the Government of Pakistan, which resulted in the grant of bail to him. He said the House also notes that the bail was granted just one day after the tragic killing of 145 children and other persons in Peshawar in a terrorist attack.

The House called upon the Government of Pakistan to proceed strongly with its declared intention to appeal against the bail judgement, and ensure that no perpetrator of any terrorist activity be allowed to go unpunished and the infrastructure of terrorism in that country is dismantled immediately.

The resolution also urged the Government of India to take appropriate steps in its power, including through its relations with other countries, to persuade Pakistan to bring this matter to a logical conclusion.
