The suspected mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, has been released on bail from a Pakistani jail.

India's Home Minister Rajnath Singh has called the release "unfortunate and disappointing".

Lakhvi had been granted bail in December, but was kept in detention under public order legislation.

He is one of seven men facing trial over the attacks, which left 165 people dead and damaged peace efforts between the two countries.

The violence was blamed on militants of the Lashkar-e-Taiba group which Lakhvi was accused of heading.
