MUMBAI, India — A Pakistani court granted bail Thursday to the accused mastermind of the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, a day after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif vowed harsh punishment for terrorists in the wake of the deadly massacre at a Pakistani school.

Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, one of seven Pakistani nationals accused of planning the attacks that killed 166 people in India’s financial capital, was released on $5,000 bail over the objections of the Pakistani government prosecutor.

The Press Trust of India reported that Lakhvi filed his bail application on Wednesday, a day after Pakistani Taliban militants raided a school in the northern city of Peshawar and slaughtered 148 people, 132 of them children.
