Pak court sentences Hafiz Saeed to 11 years in jail

An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan today sentenced Mumbai attack mastermind and Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed to 11 years in jail in terror financing cases. Saeed was sentenced in two terror financing cases in Punjab province.

The court sentenced Saeed to five and a half years and imposed a fine of 15,000 Pakistani rupees in each case. The sentences of both cases will run concurrently.

The court had indicted Saeed and his close aides on 11th of December, last year in terror financing cases in day-to-day hearing.

The cases were registered against Saeed in Lahore and Gujranwala cities on the application of the Counter Terrorism Department of Punjab police.

Saeed-led JuD is believed to be the front organization for the LeT which is responsible for carrying out the 2008 Mumbai attack that killed 166 people, including six Americans.
