The deposition of Pakistani-American Lashkar-e-Taiba operative David Coleman Headley before a special Mumbai court has begun a short while ago. Headly’s deposition is being recorded via video conferencing this morning and it will continue for next few days as well. Mumbai Special court Judge GA Sanap had on December 10th, last year, made Headly an approver and directed him to depose before the court today.
It is expected that Headley would reveal broader aspect of criminal conspiracy and who all were involved in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks which had left 166 dead and 309 others injured.
Senior Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said, Headley’s evidence is important to unfold many facts behind the 26/11 terror attacks. He also said, Headly could also clear Pakistan’s role in the attacks. Headly is currently in the custody of United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI. He was sentenced to jail for 35 years in prison in January, 2013 for his role in Mumbai attacks .
