The sentence sentenced three defendants to two years in prison on Tuesday by a Pakistani anti-terrorism court .
“On Tuesday, Lahore’s ATC sentenced Imran Chishti to two years in prison and fined 10,000 Pakistani rupees. Two other defendants, Muhammad Salman and Muhammad Ahmed, were convicted for six months. However, the other four defendants were found acquitted for lack of evidence,” PTI cited court officials in the report.
The accused was arrested under Paragraphs 295A, 290, 291, 341,506, 148 and 149 of the Pakistan Penal Code and 7-ATA (Anti-terrorism Act).
According to the FIR, Imran Chi Shiti, a public official who works in the Ministry of Fisheries, fights a Muslim-led mob against Sikhism, in the name of a seditious religion.
