David Headley, Pakistani-American convicted in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, is battling for his life after being attacked by two inmates at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago.
Headley was reportedly attacked on July 8 by two other inmates as he had been a double agent working with Pakistan and Islamist terror elements.
The injuries he suffered were grievous in nature and he had to be rushed to a hospital.
The men who attacked were reportedly admitted for assaulting policemen decades ago and are reportedly brothers.
In February 2016, Headley deposed via video conferencing before a Mumbai court in connection with the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.
David Coleman Headley, originally named Daood Sayed Gilani, was born in Washington, DC to Sayed Salim Gilani, a well-known Pakistani diplomat and broadcaster.
