National Defence College was on terror radar: Headley
Mumbai, Feb 12: Pakistani-American terrorist-turned-approver David Coleman Headley told Special TADA Court Judge G.A. Sanap on Friday that terror outfits LeT and Al Qaeda considered targeting the prestigious National Defence College in New Delhi.
He claimed that the Al Qaeda thought the NDC was a good, high value target and that he visited the college campus casually once in 2007 at the instance of his LeT handler, Sajid Mir.
After the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, Headley again did a recce of NDC and the Chabag Houses in Goa, Pune and Pushkar on the instructions of slain terrorist Ilyas Kashmiri, who later joined the Al Qaeda.
