New Delhi, Nov 13: LeT terror suspect David Coleman Headley had stayed in a hotel in New Delhi just before the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008.
The confirmation about his India visit came after a copy of his passport was found in records of the hotels he stayed while in Delhi.
The passport details of Headley reveal that he had visited Delhi and Mumbai during Apr 2008. He had then left for Pakistan.
