WASHINGTON, US: The United States has announced a reward of up to $ 5 million for information leading to the arrest or conviction of Lashkar-e-Tayyiba member Sajid Mir who is the alleged mastermind of the 26/11 Mumbai attack. 

The US Rewards for Justice program said that Mir is wanted for his involvement in the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

Mir is a senior member of the Pakistan-based foreign terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT).

10 terrorists, trained by the Pakistan-based terrorist organisation LeT, carried out a series of coordinated attacks against multiple targets in Mumbai, killing 166 people and injuring many others.
