ISLAMABAD - An Anti-Terrorism Court on Friday handed down a 28-year jail term to three terrorists for attacking a team of the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) in 2016.

A CTD spokesperson said the department had arrested Imdadullah, Sajid Javed and Muhammad Khaliq belonging to the Lashkar-i-Jhangvi (LeJ) on Dec 24, 2016 after they attempted to attack the officials with hand grenades.

Subsequently, the CTD team lodged a case under section 4/5 Explosive Act and 7 Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA).

After listening to the arguments from both sides, Judge Malik Shabbir Ahmed awarded the terrorists 14-year imprisonment under each of the section along with the confiscation of their properties.
