Mumbai, Feb 9: On the second day of his disposition before court, David Coleman Headley revealed that he had met botgh the LeT leaders Hafeez Saeed and operational commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi in Pakistan.
David also said that he had suggested Saeed that they take the US government to the court for banning the LeT and branding it as a terror outfit.
To this Lakhvi said that although it was a good idea, it would take time and would have to have ISI's consent. The conspiracy to attack Mumbai was drafted in November 2007 in Muzaffarabad, along with his contacts Sajid Mir and Abu Kahfa. He further added that he had conducted a reconnaissance of Taj Mahal, which was appreciated in the high quarters of the group. The convention hall was the main target as the aim was to attack the Indian defence scientists' meeting.
It was, however, cancelled for several reasons. Headley also revealed about his relations with his LeT colleague Abdul Rehman Pasha, who later joined al-Qaeda.
