Mumbai Attack: US Announces $10 Mn Bounty on Lashkar-E-Taiba Founder Hafiz Saeed
The US has announced a bounty of $10 million on outlawed Pakistan-based Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.
This was stated by US Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman while addressing a gathering at the American Centre in New Delhi.
She was replying to a question on what the US was doing to bring to justice those involved in terror attacks against India.
Saeed, the founder of terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba, is on India’s most wanted list. After the 26/11 attacks that left 166 people dead, India has asked Pakistan to hand him over.
The US also offered up to $2 million for the deputy leader of Lashkar-e-Taiba, Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki.
Sherman, who is on a four-day visit to the country, met Indian officials including Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai during which a host of key issues pertaining to Indo-US ties were discussed.
They also discussed the agenda for the Indo-US strategic dialogue to be held in Washington DC in mid-June.
Sherman is leaving for Patna today, the first visit by such a high-ranking US official to Bihar.
From India, Sherman would travel to Nepal, where she will meet with Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai, other Nepalese officials and South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation Secretary-General Ahmed Saleem.
