New Delhi, Apr 3 (ANI): Union Home Secretary R.K. Singh on Tuesday welcomed the decision of the United States to announced a reward of 10 million dollars for the capture or information leading to the arrest of 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed.

"We think that is a very welcome step, that is something which is necessary, was necessary and we think this is absolutely appropriate," said Singh.

"I believe that it has come out before the whole world. Everybody has recognized that he is a terrorist mastermind, who was involved in several terrorist attacks. He has been sheltered and harbored there," he added, when asked whether the latest developments involving Hafiz Saeed will put pressure on Pakistan.

The United States has declared a bounty of 10 million dollars on Saeed under its Rewards for Justice programme.

Pakistan-based Hafiz Saeed is the founder of one of the deadliest terrorist outfits Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and the chief of the banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD).

Saeed is believed to be the mastermind of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks in which 166 people, including six Americans, were killed. He is on India's most wanted list. (ANI)
