Six Sri Lankan players were injured in the attack. The banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan was believed to have carried out the attack.<br /> <br /> During a hearing on Saturday, the Judicial Review Board heard arguments by officials of the Punjab government and the counsel for Zubair.<br /> <br /> An official appeared before the board and pleaded the government's case. Zubair was also produced before the board.<br /> <br /> The counsel for the accused argued that police had failed to prove his client's involvement in the attack and the trial court had already granted him bail.<br /> <br /> He said law enforcement agencies were victimising Zubair though he had nothing to do with terrorist activities.<br /> <br /> The Punjab government official informed the board that an appeal against the bail granted to Zubair was pending in the <a href="/tags/Lahore-High-Court/post" target="_blank">Lahore High Court</a>. "More terrorism incidents are feared if the accused is released," he argued.<br /> <br /> No foreign team has toured Pakistan since the attack on the Sri Lankan players.
