India may ask Pakistan to seek deposition of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative David Coleman Headley through video conferencing before its court, where the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case is being tried, to gather more evidence so that those involved in the incident could be punished.

As the Pakistani-American terrorist talked about ISI’s “financial, military and moral support” to LeT, Jaishe-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen in his deposition to a Mumbai court, there is a possibility of India asking Pakistan to take a similar initiative to ensure production of Headley before the court in Pakistan where the 26/11 trial has been going on.

“It is one of the actions which could be taken. A decision has to be taken at the highest level,” a senior government official said. Since Pakistan is in denial on the evidence provided by India so far, Pakistan should speak to the US for Headley’s testimony through video conferencing to get first-hand evidence, the official said.

The trial of the Mumbai terror attack case in Pakistan is moving at a very slow pace with frequent disruption and change of judges.

In his deposition before a Mumbai court, Headley gave out details about 26/11 attacks and his role in it.
