"I took videos of the Shiv Sena Bhavan from outside and inside... I thought the LeT would be interested in attacking it or even carry assassination of its head (Bal Thackeray)... I provided two-three videos to Sajid Mir and Major Iqbal," Headley told Special TADA Court Judge G.A. Sanap.

Later, through a person named Vilas he met actor Rahul Bhatt, son of veteran film-maker Mahesh Bhatt based in Mumbai, Headley said.

He met Rahul Bhatt during a body-building competition at the Moksha Gym, of which Vilas was in-charge.
