ISI offers rewards to fund terror attacks on IndiaFebruary 8, 2013
NewsX, a 24-hour Indian news channel, reports that Pakistan’s ISI spy service has established a terrorist “rate card”—a document describing different terrorist acts and the rates of payment offered to those carrying out such attacks.
NewsX further reports that the beheading of Indian soldier Jawan Hemraj in early January was carried out in coordination with the ISI by Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish Muhammad operatives for 5 lakh (ie, 500,000) rupees. In Pakistani rupees, that’s about 5,000 USD per beheading.
Note to Western viewers: the flashy style of news delivery on Indian television may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but the information itself is extremely valuable:
The reward scheme also includes 5,000 rupees for placing land mines on Indian soil and 10,000 rupees to kill an Indian soldier in a firefight.
