NewDelhi:India’s tormentor-in-chief Hafiz Saeed, the head of Pakistan’s deadliest terror group Lashkare-Taiba, now carries a $10-million bounty on his head. The US has announced this reward for the capture or information leading to the capture of Saeed, making him one of the most wanted terrorists in the world.
In her maiden visit to
India, US undersecretary of state Wendy Sherman told Indian officials and a select audience at the Aspen Institute that apart from Saeed, his brother-inlaw and co-founder of Lashkar Abdul Rehman Makki now carries a bounty of $3 million on his head.
LeT, and principally Saeed, are accused of planning and executing the 26/ 11 terror attacks in Mumbai with the help of Pakistan’s spy agency, ISI. Under Saeed’s watch, Lashkar has grown to become a terror group that rivals al-Qaida in its reach and lethality. Although primarily focused against India, LeT, which has links with the ISI (some claim it has been nurtured by it), has reached European and Australian shores.
The US has $25 million on the head of Ayman al Zawahiri, the head of Qaida after the killing of Osama bin Laden, making him the most wanted terrorist in the world. Saeed is in the second rung — he joins the ranks of Mullah Omar and the Qaida chiefs of Iran and Iraq, all of whom carry a reward of $10 million. Saeed legit target for US drone attack 
New Delhi: Unlike al-Qaida head Ayman al Zawahiri, Mullah Omar and the Qaida heads of Iraq and Iran — all of whom are in hiding, Lashkar chief Hafiz Saeed is out in the open: he moves around freely in Pakistan, addresses meetings, often spewing venom at India and other democracies.
Despite his alleged involvement in the 26/11 attacks, Islamabad has refused to act against him. The reward on him would put Pakistan in an awkward position.
The US’s decision means that Saeed now becomes a legitimate target for a US drone attack, like the ones that killed Baitullah Mehsud, head of the Pakistan Taliban, and Ilyas Kashmiri, head of al-Qaida’s Brigade 313.
In recent months, Hafiz Saeed has been entertaining political ambitions, and has established a new umbrella group of 40 Pakistani terror groups called the Difa-e-Pakistan (Pakistan Defence Council).
In his numerous rallies, Saeed has declared violence and terrorism against India was justified and would continue.
