?Omar Sheikh ‘surrendered’ to Ijaz Shah, a former Intelligence Chief, then Home 
Secretary of Punjab; he is now the country’s Interior Minister. 
?Even more curiously, it was after many days that Sheikh’s arrest was shown. 
?The Sindh government has extended Sheikh’s detention and the provincial 
prosecutor has said that the High Court ruling will be appealed in the Supreme 
Court. 
?Once the pressure eases, Sheikh and his cohorts will be let off as has 
happened with others before them. 
?In 2015, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, who supervised the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, was 
released from detention, and remains free. 
?Pakistan needs to be persuaded to move beyond tokenism and demonstrate a 
much higher order of commitment to deal with such terrorists than it has 
hitherto shown.
