Islamabad: Pakistani authorities on Friday issued a list of 109 "most wanted" terrorists, including Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) member Mati-ur-Rehman who was accused of involvement in a suicide attack on former premier Shaukat Aziz.
The list, made public on the website of Punjab Police, includes 28 members of the banned LeJ, which claimed responsibility for two recent attacks on Shias in Quetta city that killed nearly 200 people, and 34 members of various factions of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan.
Mati-ur-Rehman, who carries a bounty of Rs. 1 crore on his head, was accused of involvement in a 2004 suicide attack on former premier Aziz and a 2002 suicide car bomb attack outside the Sheraton Hotel in Karachi that killed 11 French engineers working on a submarine programme of the Pakistan Navy.
The list of wanted terrorists includes Mansoor alias Chotta Ibrahim, who was accused of involvement in a suicide attack on former President Pervez Musharraf at Rawalpindi in December 2003. The government has offered a reward of Rs. 50 lakhs for Mansoor, who has links with both the LeJ and the Pakistani Taliban.
