Headley's deposition to lead India to 'logical conclusion' in 26/11 case: Rijiju


Submitted by Subeditor on Mon, 2016-02-08 12:45 New Delhi/Patna: Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju on Monday said the deposition of David Coleman Headley would lead India to a logical conclusion in the 26/11 terror attack case. "It will lead us to a very logical conclusion of the case. It is already known that who is involved in the entire case and where are the backgrounds of Headley's working system and support. It will help us," Rijiju told the media here. Echoing similar sentiments, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Bihar and former home secretary RK Singh said, "The deposition of David Coleman Headley is important because it would reveal how the ISI handlers were active in this matter. It would further expose Pakistan. The drama of Pakistan regarding the distinction between state actor and non state actor will end after this. Singh further stated that after the deposition, Pakistan cannot say they don't have evidence, adding that it can use the deposition for further investigation and prosecute all the others accused in the case. Headley, who deposed before a special Mumbai court, in a shocking revelation stated that two attempts were made prior to the final attack on November 26, 2008. According to Headley, the first attempt was made in September 2008, which failed because the boat hit some rocks in the ocean. The people on board were saved as they were wearing life jackets. However, the weapons and explosives were lost. He said that the second attempt was made after a month in October 2008. "Those involved in first attempt were involved in this as well, but the attack failed," he said. Headley further said that it was in the third and final attempt that the attack was successful on November 26, 2008. Headley is presently revealing the sequence of events and planning behind the 26/11 terror attacks before a special Mumbai court. (ANI)
