Four years after the Mumbai police’s Anti-Terrorism Squad arrested him, the former Imam of Haj House in south Mumbai was acquitted of terror charges on Saturday.

The Sewri fast track court acquitted Maulana Ghulam Yahya (47).

The cleric was charged with sheltering three Lashkar-e-Tayyeba militants from Jammu and Kashmir in January 2006 and acting as a link between the militants and Lashkar commander Salauddin in Kashmir.

The court, however, sentenced three militants — Mohammed Ramzan Haji (64), Kurisind Ahmed Lone (32) and Arshad Hussain Badru (29)—to seven years imprisonment.
