Pakistan jails five top army officers over links with banned organistaion
Islamabad, Aug 4 (ANI): A Pakistani military court has reportedly convicted five senior officers over links with a banned group.
The organisation they were linked with has not been revealed, but the officials have in the past identified it as Hizb ut-Tahrir, a British-based Islamic group.
According to the BBC, the most senior of the five, Brig Ali Khan, was handed a five-year prison sentence.
The others received sentences of 18 months to three years, the report said.
Brig Khan was arrested following the killing of Osama Bin Laden in a CIA raid in Pakistan last year.
He was initially charged with conspiring to overthrow the civilian government, but some charges were later dropped.
According to the report, the army said the convicts have the right to appeal, but gave no further details. (ANI)
