"I am travelling and things are so bad these days, I would like to leave a few instructions with you in case of my death or if I am anticipated for some reason," Headley wrote to Rana on March 3, 2009 in an email.
Explaining the purpose behind this email, Headley said he was afraid of going back to India at this point of time because of increased surveillance.
"Why?" he was asked.
"Because I have been coming in and out of India before the (Mumbai) attacks, conducted the surveillance, (so I was) was concerned about being apprehended in India during the travel," he said.
In the email he identifies his two wives as M1 and M2.
"First of all M2. Please get her to Canada as soon as possible. Till that time comes, send her USD 350 per month through Pasha. Communicate with her through him and don't give her your numbers, even if you call her, as the number doesn't show up on card calls. When she does get the visa, give her Canadian USD 6000 and ticket and instructions," Headley said.
"Regarding M1, sit with her and decide whether she should return home immediately, or after one year, or after two years. We will play this by ear if I am incapacitated, if I die then use your best judgment," he wrote.
"I would like my sons to get into Aicthison after their Hifz, to if you can swing it, great, and if not then whatever is the next best option," he said.
Headley also revealed the details of his assets to Rana.
"I have 2 shops in Dubai completely paid up. The larger one has two more years on the lease. The rent is fixed at 23,780 dirham quarterly. It was paid in Feb so you can figure out when next it is due. The smaller one has one year on its lease," he said.
"Rent is 12,200 quarterly, paid in Jan so figure out the rest. The guy managing these properties is Imran Lodhi and his number is 011-971-50-214-2936 he has 2 months rent with him for EACH shop now, that is of October, Nov 08 and of Jan, Feb, 09," he said.
"I let him keep it since I owe 166,000 dirham on the 3rd shop I am planning to buy. The balance of this payment, after deducting the four months -rent will be paid after I sell this plot in Pakistan. After that I will have to pay the balance on the 3rd shop by 2011 the amount is 166000 multiplied by six. All these 3 shops are in Shazis name," Headley said.
"I have 117 acres land near Gharo. That whole situation will be explained to you by Solat when it becomes necessary. I will give you Power of Attorney to act and negotiate with JKS on my behalf or my heirs will give it to you if I am not around. Solat is five percent owner of that land and any deal that arises from it, though not on paper but it should be considered as such. This property is in my name," Headley wrote.
"The last thing is Abba's house, 60 percent of it is owned by me. Abba's share comes to about 21 marlas. I want my sons to keep that house at ALL costs. Once again Solat has all the necessary details pertaining to this house. I want this issue settled as soon as possible as I fear the other heirs of my father may have-a change of niyyat after my departure or incapacitation," he said.
