Pak announces reward for spying against Taliban
Islamabad: The Pakistan government has announced a reward of 10 million rupees to anyone providing information about the Taliban.
“The government will make arrangements to settle the informers and their families anywhere in the country, even abroad, if they fear that the Taliban might hurt them,” the Daily Times quoted Interior Minister Rehman Malik, as saying.
He said most Taliban belonged to the banned Sunni militant outfits of Laskhar-e-Jhangvi and Sipah-e-Sahaba.
Lashkar-e-Jhangvi is regarded as the country’s most extreme Sunni outfit, accused of killing hundreds of Shias after its emergence in the early 1990s.
Banned by former president Pervez Musharraf in 1999, the group played a key role in the 2002 kidnap and murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl from Karachi, and in twin failed assassination bids on Musharraf.
