Mumbai Blasts: $10 M U.S. Reward to Nab Hafiz Saeed

Hafiz Saeed, who is believed to be the brain behind 26/11 (Nov. 26, 2008) terror attacks in India’s financial capital Mumbai (a.k.a. Bombay), is now facing the wrath of U.S. administration.

It’s reported that Obama administration has announced a reward of a whopping $10 million for any information leading to his arrest.

This decision of the U.S. government is perhaps a major crackdown on terrorists and terror outfits after the death of Osama Bin Laden (pictured above) last year in a U.S.-led military operation in Pakistan. (Read: Has Osama Bin Laden Died Again?)

It’s said that now Saeed, who is the chief of terrorist gangs Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), is based in Pakistan.

The news of the reward was conveyed to the Indian government on Monday by the visiting U.S, Under-Secretary of Political Affairs, Wendy Sherman.

In the Mumbai blasts, it was reported that 168 people were killed and over 300 injured – including 6 Americans.

Reports say that Saeed’s brother-in-law and co-founder of Lashkar Abdul Rehman Makki also carries a reward of $3 million on his head.
