The US announced a reward worth $10 million for the capture or any information leading to the capture of Saeed, making him one of the most wanted persons in the world.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson further added that the judiciary in Pakistan is free and take decisions according to the constitution.

Saeed, earlier responding to the US bounty during a press conference in Rawalpindi said that he will be in Lahore tomorrow and the US can contact him whenever it wants. “The bounty is always set on people who are in hiding… There is no case against me in any American court,” he maintained while terming the bounty absurd.

"He is wanted in the US court in connection with the killing of two American Citizens in the Mumbai Attacks"

Very funny.... There is no proof that the Mumbai Attacks were committed by Hafiz Saeed then how can America put the responsibility on Hafiz Saeed for this?????. When there is no proof, the litigation against Hafiz Saeed for killing two Americans itself don't exist............(Common sense)
