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.

"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.
