The United States said on Wednesday that it is imposing sanctions against four people, one of whom allegedly provided assistance to Al-Qaeda militants and the other three allegedly led a militant group in Pakistan.

The U.S. Treasury said in a statement that it would freeze the funds and assets of Fazeel-A-Tul Shaykh Abu Mohammed Ameen Al-Peshawari, Arif Qasmani, Mohammed Yahya Mujahid and Nasir Javaid.

"The designated individuals have provided direct support to al Qaeda and LeT and have facilitated ... terrorist attacks, including the July 2006 train bombing in Mumbai, India," the statement said.

Al-Peshawari was said to have provided funds and recruits to AlQaeda and the Taliban, and was believed to be responsible for recruiting fighters and suicide bombers and for funding militants in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Qasmani allegedly conducted fund-raising and helped facilitate attacks including the 2006 train bombings in Mumbai, which killed more than 180 people.

LeT stands for Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan-based militant group. The United States designated the group as a foreign terrorist organization in December 2001. It was banned in Pakistan in 2002.
