Rewards for Justice is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information on Sajid Mir, also known as Sajid Majid Chuhdri and Sajid Majid. Mir, a senior member of the Pakistan-based Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT), is wanted for his involvement in the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India. Mir was LeT’s operations manager for the attacks, playing a leading role in their planning, preparation, and execution.
Beginning November 26, 2008, and continuing through November 29, 2008, 10 individuals trained by LeT, carried out a series of coordinated terrorist attacks against multiple targets in Mumbai, India, killing 166 people. Six Americans were among those killed during the 3-day siege: Ben Zion Chroman, Gavriel Holtzberg, Sandeep Jeswani, Alan Scherr, Naomi Scherr, and Aryeh Leibish Teitelbaum.
Mir has been a senior member of LeT since approximately 2001. From 2006 to 2011, Mir was in charge of LeT’s external operations and planned and directed various terrorist attacks on behalf of the group. Additionally, Mir allegedly conspired to commit a terrorist attack against a newspaper and its employees in Denmark between 2008 and 2009.
For his role in the Mumbai attacks attack, Mir was indicted in the United States in April 2011. On August 30, 2012, the U.S. Department of the Treasury designated Mir as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist pursuant to Executive Order 13224, as amended. As a result of this designation, among other consequences, all property and interests in property of Mir that are subject to U.S. jurisdiction are blocked, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with Mir. In addition, it is a crime to knowingly provide, or attempt or conspire to provide, material support or resources to the FTO LeT. Mir is on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists List. He is believed to reside in Pakistan.
