26/11 case: Abu Jundal’s lawyer seeks four days to question Headley

Mumbai : Wahab Khan, the lawyer of 26/11 plotter Abu Jundal, on Monday said David Headley should be cross examined for four days before the Mumbai Special Court.
The court directed Public Prosecutor Ujjawal Nikam to check the availability and communicate the same to the US authorities that Headley is needed for cross examination for four days from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.

After confirmation from the US authorities, the court will fix the dates for cross examination.

The next hearing in the case will take place on February 25.

Headley, who is testifying as an approver in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks case, was deposed before a Special Court in Mumbai earlier this month.

In his fourth deposition, he had told the court that he was told to survey naval air station and Siddhivinayak temple, but he discouraged the idea to target them as both were heavily guarded.

In his depositions so far, Headley has revealed important information about the planning behind the terror attacks and his role in the same.

His reconnaissance provided vital information for the 10 LeT terrorists and their handlers, who attacked Mumbai on November 26, 2008, in which 166 persons, including foreign nationals, were killed.

Headley drew maps, took video footage and scouted several targets for the attacks including the Taj Hotel, Oberoi Hotel and Nariman House during his five visits between 2006 and 2008. (ANI)
