In a fresh turn in the Mumbai terror attack case, Mumbai police would approach the trial court seeking a letter rogatory to obtain evidence from a US court about alleged involvement of David Headley and Tahawwur Rana in the 26/11 attacks.

"We shall soon move this court for a letter rogatory (request) to a US court seeking information about the alleged involvement of Headley and Rana in the 26/11 attacks", Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam told Judge M L Tahaliyani after closing the case of the prosecution.

This is first reaction of the prosecution on alleged involvement of Headley and Rana in the November 26 terror attacks.

It appeared from the chargesheet filed by Federal Bureau of Investigation in the US court that Headley and Rana were involved in the module of filming targets, Nikam said adding accused Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed facing trial
in a court here were involved in preparing maps of targets.

He said the LeT had adopted different set of modules for collecting information about the topography of places targetted for the terror attacks.

Nikam said one module was given the task of filming the targets while the other was asked to draw maps of places sought to be attacked.
