The 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi was on January 8 sentenced to 15 years by an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan.
 
A PTI report quoted court official as saying, "The Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) Lahore convicted Lakhvi for commission of offences of terrorism financing in a case registered by the CTD for 15 years under a different section of the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997."
 
The UN proscribed terrorist Lakhvi was sentenced to five years of rigorous imprisonment each on three counts with a fine of PKR 100,000 each on three counts. "In default of payment of fine, he will have to undergo an imprisonment of six months each on three counts. He has been sent to prison to serve the sentences," the official to PTI.
 
Islamic terrorist Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi was arrested by Pak Punjab province's Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) over terror financing charges six days ago. He was out on bail since 2015 in the Mumbai terrorist attack case.
In December 2008, the United Nations had designated Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi as a global terrorist for being associated with LeT and al-Qaeda and for “participating in the financing, planning, facilitating, preparing or perpetrating of acts by, in conjunction with, under the name of, on behalf or in support of” both the entities.
