Tahawwur Rana knew about my association with LeT, says Headley

Pakistani-American terrorist David Coleman Headley today said Tahawwur Rana, his associate and a Pakistani native who operated an immigration business in Chicago, was aware that he was an operative of terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

Headley’s cross-examination by Abdul Wahab Khan, the lawyer of Abu Jundal, an alleged key plotter of the 2008 terror attack, began this morning in the court of Mumbai sessions judge G A Sanap, via video link from the US.

When Khan asked him about Rana, Headley said, “Rana knew about my association with LeT. I informed him about the training imparted by me to LeT operatives. I disclosed to Rana that I was spying for LeT. This was four to five months before the 26/11 attacks.”
The 55-year-old terrorist, who has turned approver in the 26/11 case, further said Rana had objected to his association with LeT.

“Rana objected to my association with LeT. He did not want me to continue using his office in Mumbai. I conceded his objection and started taking steps to close down the office. This was in July 2008,” he said.

However, Headley refused to answer questions about his wife Shazia.
