The Centre is mulling a reward of Rs 1 crore to anyone who gives clues about terrorists who may have planted the bomb in the German Bakery, a favourite eating joint of foreigners.
Top Home Ministry officials said the reward proposal is being considered at the highest level and may take a decision in favour of it soon.
"If we declare the reward, we will tell the people that whoever shares any information about the perpetrators of the blast, his or her identity would be protected. We would not even ask his name but give the reward. But information has to be correct," an official said.
The move is being considered in the light of investigators still groping for vital clues about the terrorists behind the powerful blasts.
