The three -- Maulvi Adam Khan Achekzai, Aamir Ali Chaudhry and Qari Ayyub Bashir -- have been designated for providing material, logistical and financial support to the three designated organisations, according to a statement issued by the US Treasury Department.

The sanctions will freeze any assets under US jurisdiction held by the three individuals, and will prohibit any US citizens from engaging in transactions with Chaudhry, Achekzai and Bashir.

Achekzai and Chaudhry have been involved in the production of improvised and other explosive devices. Bashir has been accused of coordinating financial support for IMU's operations in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the statement added.
