Bangla Hunt Desk: Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the conspirator of the Mumbai Attack and the commander of Lashkar-e-Taiba, has been given a monthly stipend of Rs 1.5 lakh by the UN Security Council. The permission came after the panel was approached by the Imran Khan government, the UNSC's anti-terrorism committee.
The committee approved Pakistan's request for monthly expenses to Pakistani nuclear engineer Mehmood Sultan Baharuddin and the founder and director of Umad Tamir-e-Now, a United States-listed company. Lakhvi, the operations commander of the militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, was listed as a global militant by the United Nations in a UNSC proposal in 2008 after the Mumbai attacks.
The militants attacked Mumbai. In the attack, 10 militants from the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba entered India with a large number of weapons and attacked three locations in Mumbai. The attack killed 16 people and injured 300 others. Lakhvi, the Lashkar's operations commander, was released from a Pakistani prison in April 2015 after nearly six years in prison.
According to the Security Council resolution, it is imperative for all countries to confiscate the funds and other financial assets of the nominees.
