NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his concerns over the interference of China in blocking the action to be taken against the Pakistan, in the case of releasing the 26/11 Mastermind Zaki-ur-Rahman Lakhvi. Sources said that the Indian Prime Minister has expressed his dissatisfaction at the highest level to Beijing.

Following the release of the accused Lakhvi from the Prison, India has requested the United Nations to interfere in the case of releasing the accused which was against the UN resolution against the Terrorism. The United Nations sanctions committee, which met at the New York earlier this month on the request of the Indian Government, has decided to seek a clarification from the Pakistan over the release of Lakhvi.
