India offers Pakistan Rs.56 crore for handing over Hafiz Saeed

New Delhi: Exasperated with Pakistan’s refusal to act against Hafiz Saeed, Indian Home Secretary R. K. Singh had offered that India would even be ready to pay Rs.56 crore to Pakistan in case Saeed is handed over to them, Indian media revealed on Sunday.

Reports said that Singh’s remark came at the conclusion of the two-day talks in Islamabad on Friday where the much-anticipated signing of the visa agreement between both countries did not happen.Singh, however, maintained that there was enough evidence provided by India against Saeed and that added to the proof collected against Saeed by Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA). He said it was adequate to arrest and prosecute Saeed for the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

When asked if India would in that case pocket the Rs.56 crore bounty offered by the US for providing evidence leading to conviction of Saeed, Singh said that India would be more than happy to give Pakistan that amount if they handed over Saeed to India.-Onlinenews
