Pak-origin citizen sentenced to 12 years in prison for providing material support to LeT

Washington, Sat, 14 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr 14(ANI): A US judge has sentenced a Pakistan- origin citizen ubair Ahmed to 12 years in jail for providing material support to the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

The US State Department's press release said Ahmed moved to the US in 2007 with his family after receiving a visa to the country, The Express Tribune reports.

It added that Ahmed established contact with Let chief Hafid Saeed's son Talha Saeed in September 2010.

"Talha Saeed requested Ahmad to prepare a video that would contain a prayer by Hafiz Saeed calling for the support of jihad and the mujahideen. In addition, Talha Saeed instructed Ahmad to present a variety of violent images on the video while Hafiz Saeed's prayer is heard in the background," the press release said.

Ahmed admitted that Talha Saeed asked him not to use anything in the video pertaining to the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

Ahmad later sent a communication to another person overseas in which he explained that "Hafiz Saeed's son Talha Saeed" had requested him to prepare the video. Forensic examination by the FBI subsequently confirmed that Ahmad had constructed the LeT video on his computer."

The US Department of Justice also presented evidence that Ahmed conspired to recruit others "to attend LeT training camps, conspired to raise funds for LeT, and expressed his intention to return to Pakistan to complete the LeT commando training course and be launched on a martyrdom mission."

Both India and US blame the Pakistan- based group LeT for the deadly November 2008 Mumbai attacks that had killed 160 people including six Americans. (ANI)
