NEW DELHI: The United States Monday announced a USD 5 million reward for information leading to the arrest or conviction against those responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The Trump Administration announced this major reward (of more than Rs 35 crore) on the 10th anniversary of the terror attack which left 166 people dead and hundreds injured.
Describing the Mumbai terror attack as a “barbarity”, the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday called upon Pakistan and other nations to uphold their UN Security Council obligations to implement sanctions against those responsible for the atrocity, including Lashkar-e-Taiba and its affiliates. “We stand with the families and friends of the victims, whose loved ones were lost in this act of barbarism, including six American citizens,” he added.
Today’s announcement marks the third RFJ reward offer seeking information on the perpetrators of the Mumbai attack. The United States, Pompeo said, is committed to seeing that those responsible for the attack face justice.
