Islamabad, Aug. 8 (ANI): Following the death of Pak-Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud in a US drone strike, an interesting question has cropped up-Will Islamabad offer the promised bounty money of 50 million rupees to the CIA for killing Pakistan's enemy no. 1?

The US government had also announced a 5-million-dollar bounty on Mehsud.

The Pakistan Government had announced a reward for the capture, dead or alive, of Baitullah, apart from offering rewards for the arrest or killing of 10 other Taliban leaders, the Daily Times reports.

Other most wanted militants on Islamabad's list are-Faqir Muhammad of Bajaur, Abdul Wali alias Omar Khalid and Qari Shakeel of Mohmand, Tariq Afridi from Darra Adamkhel and Hakimullah Mehsud and Qari Hussain from South Waziristan Agency.

Apart from whom the US would pay their reward money for the information leading to Mehsud's death, the question now is that whether Islamabad would pay their announced head money to the CIA, which coordinated, planned and executed the attack that targeted the Taliban chief. (ANI)
