The court sentenced four persons including Hafiz Saeed in two cases, in which Prof. Zafar Iqbal and Yahya Mujahid were sentenced to ten and a half years, while Prof. Hafiz Abdul Rehman Maki was sentenced to six months imprisonment.

Judge Arshad Hussain Bhatta’s court on Thursday passed judgment on cases No. 16/19 and 25/19 filed by the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD).
