Pakistani-American terrorist David Coleman Headley will be cross-examined in the 26/11 terror attacks case from March 22-25, said reports on Thursday.
Headley, convicted in the United States for his role in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, had earlier deposed before a Mumbai court via a video link and exposed Pakistan’s role in the 26/11 attacks.
Headley had earlier confirmed that Ishrat Jahan, killed in an encounter in Gujarat, was indeed a Lashkar-e-Toiba operative.
Headley had also revealed that he came to Mumbai to select 26/11 attack sites.
In further disclosures, 55-year-old Headley, who recently turned approver in the 26/11 case, said LeT had planned attacks on the famous Akshardham temple in Ahmedabad to avenge the Babri Masjid demolition and that terror handler Abu Kahfa was in continuous touch with 10 of his members, sent to Mumbai to launch the 26/11 attack, from a control room in Karachi.
Headley also told the court how ISI and LeT majorly funded terror operations in India and financed him from time to time and that Pakistan native Tahawwur Rana visited Mumbai before the terror strikes in November 2008, which left 166 people dead and 309 injured.
