Asia Bizz: The government of US will soon be announcing a $10 million reward for the Most wanted Indian terrorist, Hafiz Saeed, the chief of Jamaat-ud-Dawa. The message was conveyed by Wendy Sherman during her talks with the National Security Advisor, Shivshankar Menon on April 2, 2012.
The recent development has been seen as an indication of Obama’s administrative receptiveness to India’s concerns. In addition to the reward for Saeed, the US government is also offering another $3 million for the capture of Abdul Rehman Makki. Makki is another senior functionary of Lashkar-e-Taiba, which was found by Saeed .
During her talks with Menon, Sheman indicated a closer collaboration between India and the US to combat terrorism and catching the ones responsible for terrorist attacks across the world.
Another security expert opined that the action taken by the US might put pressure on Saeed as well as the Pakistani government, but it will not be enough to prevent Islamabad to provide him protection.
According to an Interpol notice against Saeed, he has been roaming free in Pakistan and the Lahore high court has found no evidence against him. The terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba was founded by Saeed and has reportedly been responsible for many terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir and many other parts of India.
