ISI and LeT wanted to target Mumbai Airport and Naval Air Station during the 26/11-terror attack: Headley

sk

Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley today told a court here that ISI and LeT wanted to target Mumbai Airport and Naval Air Station during the 26/11-terror attack. He further said that he had video graphed Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) in 2008 and was asked to recruit someone from there to work with the Pakistani spy agency.

Testifying via video-link from the US, he also told the court he was interested in developing close relations with a Shiv Sena member for a possible future target of Sena Bhawan.

In further disclosures, Headley, who recently turned approver in the 26/11 case said that during his last visit to Mumbai in July 2008, prior to the Mumbai attacks, he had surveyed and video graphed the Chabad House in south Mumbai. On the question of selecting Chabad House as target, Headley told court that it was selected by LeT as a target as it was an international location where Jewish and Israeli people were staying.

Headley also told the court that he had discouraged the idea to target Naval Air Station and Siddhivinayak Temple as both were heavily guarded.

Headley told the court that he recede India eight times before the attack and once after that.

Headley, who had conducted surveillance of Siddhivinayak Temple, added that he had purchased some 15 to 20 red and yellow sacred threads from the temple as a cover for the 10 attackers so that people would think they were Hindus. He also said that he had visited Nalanda Book Store near Taj Hotel in Mumbai in July 2008 and purchased five books.

Pakistani-American terrorist told the court that Lashkar-e-Toiba was unhappy that Mumbai Airport was not selected as one of the targets in attacks.
