Karachi, July 24 (ANI): Pakistan intelligence inputs have found that Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan chief Baitullah Mehsud has prepared a hit list of around 300 high-profile figures, including political leaders, perceiving them as 'American agents'.

Their families were also believed to be at risk, added the sources.
