An Anti-Terrorism Court in Swat on Wednesday sentenced a man — arrested for blasphemy in Chitral — to life in prison. The court also imposed a fine of Rs300,000 on the convict. The man had been arrested in a blasphemy case in the Damair area of Chitral in June last year. The case, though, was trailed at the ATC Swat.
