New York, Mar 17 (ANI): Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operative David Coleman Headley, who has been charged by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with conspiring in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks will plead guilty before a US court on Thursday.

Headley is expected to plead guilty at the court hearing in Chicago on Thursday. Earlier, he had pleaded not guilty when the FBI formally charged him.

His lawyer John Thief said that a plea agreement is being worked out but refused to specify the charges his client Headley would admit to inside the court.

Thief, however, said that discussions were going on with the government for plea bargaining.

Forty-nine-year-old Headley is accused of being a scout for the deadly 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks in which at least 166 people including six Americans were killed and a plot to kill a Danish cartoonist. (ANI)
