Lahore, Jan 05 (Agencies): The Pakistani Police arrested a man who had announced a Rs 20 million prize for anyone who killed Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer for opposing the country's controversial blasphemy law.

Sardar Ebaad Dogar of Khangarh near Multan was arrested on Tuesday shortly after Taseer was gunned down by a guard who claimed he was angered by the Governor's opposition to the blasphemy law.

Police took Dogar to an undisclosed location for interrogation.
Dogar had announced at a rally on Friday that he would pay Rs 20 million to the person who killed Taseer.

The rally was organised by religious hardliners to oppose any move to repeal or amend the blasphemy law.

Talking to the media after the rally, Dogar had said he felt no embarrassment in offering the reward.

He said he would raise the bounty to Rs 30 million if a resident of Khangarh killed Taseer.
Dogar had served as Khangarh district's nazim or mayor after being elected on the ticket of the Opposition PML-Q.

He was accused of having links with the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba before joining the PML-Q.
