26/11 trial: Headley begins deposition

Once Headley is done with his deposition, the prosecution is likely to cross examine him. The prosecution is trying to understand the larger conspiracy behind the 26/11 attack.

The testimony of Headley comes after he had sought pardon. When he was produced for the first time before the court two months back, he had confessed to his role in the 26/11 attack. He had said that if he is granted pardon he would turn approver and testify before the court.

The court is currently hearing a case relating to the alleged role played by Abu Jundal who was the Hindi tutor for the ten terrorists who carried out the attack. Jundal was deported to India from Saudi Arabia.
