A Delhi court on Saturday awarded life imprisonment to six Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HuJI) terrorists, including three Pakistanis, for plotting to kidnap cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly in 2002.

Additional Sessions Judge Pinki (one name) pronounced the sentence in the case in which the convicts were also accused of plotting to assassinate the then president A.P.J Abdul Kalam during his visit to Patna in 2002.
