Covai Post Network

In the remembrance of the 2008 Mumbai attacks, the US has announced $5 million reward for information on perpetrators of the 26/11 gory terrorist violence.

Any information leading to the arrest or conviction in any country of any individual who committed, conspired to commit, or aided or abetted the execution of the attack would be rewarded, it said.

The horrific incident lead the world to recognise Pakistan as a terror hub. In Mumbai, series of coordinated attacks were carried out at multiple locations Taj Mahal Hotel, the Oberoi Hotel, the Leopold Café, the Nariman (Chabad) House, and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus station, killing approximately 170 persons by 10 Pakistan-based foreign-trained terrorists from Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT).

The suspects are Sajid Mir, who served as a ‘handler’ for David Headley and others who were directed to carry out actions, Major Iqbal, a Pakistani resident who participated in planning and funding attacks carried out by LeT, Abu Qahafa, a Pakistani resident associated with LeT who trained others in combat techniques, and Mazhar Iqbal, alias Abu al-Qama, a Pakistani resident and one of LeT’s commanders.
