There is actually a huge benefit for India. This is a stick that India can conveniently use to beat up the WKK folks, while also canceling all engagement with Paki pigs, including the impending Kirket match. I can only see good news about Lakhvi's release. No negatives at all!
Thanks paki pigs.

The "release" basically does away with any fig leaf that Pakis and resident MPTPs would have called up to cover their fibs and lies. WKKs will become more brazen and their shamelessness will there for all to see.
Moreover, this came AFTER Jaishankar's visit to Isloo. No political formation within India will touch this with a bargepole, without the risk of alienating a sizable chunk of their supporters.
Agree with both. Use this incident to hammer home the point that Bakis cannot be trusted to keep their word. No point is getting our BP up.
Bakis expected some movement on talks during Jaishankar's visit. Seems the visit was a TOTAL washout as far as they were concerned. This is their way of getting back at the Indians for leaving them empty handed. Tactical brilliance of the best kind.
India/Modi wants to give the Indo-US relations some slack for it to develop because Modi believes (Rightly) that it *could* help India's objectives wrt China, funding, tech. transfer, industrialization, etc. Modi seemingly bowing to US demand/suggestion and in a show of good faith sends his foreign secretary for an exploratory visit. The Bakis pay back by releasing Lakvi. Now Modi can point to this incident to fend off new Americans suggestions. Even if Lakvi is hauled back to jail Modi can use this incident to justify its slow and cautious baby steps.
By 2018-19 the benefits or lack of benefit of Indo-US cooperation would become visible. Also, Modi's domestic agenda hopefully would have progressed enough for him to drop the pretense of engagement. About that time we should expect a major realignment in out relations with US, China and Bakistan. In the meantime Modi will do anything that he think will further his domestic agenda.
