Pakistan Taliban man given 48 death sentences
Lahore: In an unusual verdict, a Taliban terrorist was on Thursday given 48 death sentences by a Pakistani anti-terrorism court for his involvement in an attack on an ISI office in Punjab province that killed 24 people.
Judge Masood Arshad also handed down 14 sentences of 10 years in prison to Tehrik-e-Taliban activist Usman Ghani and directed him to pay a fine and compensation of Rs 1. 2 million.
Prosecutors said Ghani was the mastermind of a bomb attack on the ISI office in Faisalabad district, 100 km from Lahore, in March 2011 that killed 24 people.
They said Ghani was trained in Taliban camps in Waziristan tribal region and sent to carry out terror attacks.
