The $ 10 million bounty on Lashkar-e-Taiba founder and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed was the subject of a verbal tit-for-tat at an interaction home secretary RK Singh had with journalists in Islamabad last week.


At the media conference after the two-day home secretary level talks, a Pakistani journalist tried to needle Singh with a question whether India would 'pocket' the $10 million bounty offered by the United States for providing evidence leading to conviction of Saeed.

"India would be more than happy to give Pakistan that amount if they handed over Saeed to India," the home secretary shot back.
