Lucknow: A sessions court Monday awarded life imprisonment to a Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) operative and sentenced another member of the terror group to 14 years in jail, five years after they were arrested with AK-56 rifles and ammunition in the city.

Atharuddin was handed down life imprisonment while Mohd Irfan was awarded a 14-year jail term under POTA and various sections of IPC.

District and sessions judge Shivanand Mishra also imposed a total fine of Rs 8.2 lakh on Atharuddin and Rs 4.7 lakh on Irfan this afternoon.
