Man, behind Mumbai terror attacks and Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) boss Hafiz Saeed was on Thursday condemned to 10 years in prison by an enemy of the psychological warfare court in Lahore in two fear financing cases. Saeed is now in prison as in February this year, he was condemned to 11 years in prison in two other fear financing cases. As of now, he is stopped at Lahore’s high-security Kot Lakhpat prison.

“The Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) of Lahore on Thursday condemned four heads of Jamat-ud-Dawa, including its boss Hafiz Saeed, in two additional cases,” a court official told PTI. Saeed and his two close helpers – Zafar Iqbal and Yahya Mujahid – have been condemned to 10 and a half years each, while JuD boss’ brother by marriage Abdul Rehman Makki was condemned to a half year detainment. “Judge Arshad Hussain Bhutta of ATC Court No. 1 heard the case No. 16/19 and 25/19 documented by Counter Terrorism Department in which the decision has been reported after the assertions of witnesses were interviewed by Naseeruddin Nayyar and Mohammad Imran Fazal Gul Advocate,” the authority said. A sum of 41 cases have been enrolled by the CTD against the JuD pioneers, out of which 24 have been chosen while the rest are forthcoming in the ATC courts.

Four bodies of evidence have been ruled against Saeed up until now. Saeed-drove JuD is the front association for the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) which is liable for doing the 2008 Mumbai assault that executed 166 individuals, including six Americans.

Back in July, the best 13 individuals from the JuD, including Saeed, were reserved in almost two dozen cases for dread financing and tax evasion under Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA), 1997. Accordingly, Saeed was captured from Gujranwala on charges of dread financing by the Punjab Counterterrorism Department (CTD). The US Department of the Treasury has assigned Saeed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist. He was recorded under the UN Security Council Resolution 1267 in December 2008
