Eight Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists, including three Pakistanis, convicted for involvement in terror activities in India were sentenced to life by a sessions court here on Wednesday, a court official said.

The court also fined them Rs 3 lakh each.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Pawan Garg awarded the sentence under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, Special Public Prosecutor Mahaveer Jindal said.

The court had on November 30 convicted the eight for abetting unlawful activity, conspiracy, recruiting persons for terrorist acts and for being members of a terrorist gang or organisation.

While the Pakistani convicts are Asgar Ali, Shakkar Ulla and Shahid Iqbal, the others are Indians: Babu alias Nishachand Ali, Hafiz Abdul, Pawan Puri, Arun Jain and Kabil.

Rajasthan's Anti-Terrorism Squad had arrested these persons in 2010 and accused them of remaining in touch with an LeT commander based in Pakistan.
