1 Crore reward for information on Lahore attack
Pakistan authorities have announced an award of Rs 1 crore for any information about the attack on Sri Lankan Cricket team in Lahore. Three suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident.
"We have prepared sketches of the suspects and the Government of Punjab has announced an award of Rs 1 crore on them. We have given those sketches to all our sources, we are doing individual searches as well so that we are able to find those responsible for the attack. That is our top priority," said Habibur Rehman, Lahore Police Chief.
Meanwhile, India has rejected the statements emanating from Pakistan that a foreign hand could be behind the attack on Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore. India has said that such statements are irresponsible and must be ignored.
The Pakistan Interior Ministry says initial reports show that the attack was not planned locally and immigration records from Wagah have been demanded. Police raided private hostels in Lahore and many have been sealed.
First investigation report will be submitted in 48 hours.
