Terror suspect David Headley was scheduled to visit India again in November 2009, apparently to finalise the next target for Lashkar-e-Tayyeba and set up a base in Delhi.
Sources privy to the investigations said that Headley told his friends in India that he was coming to the country in November for his business.
Headley’s messages to his friends, who recorded statements before the National Investigation Agency, stopped in the last week of September. Headley was arrested a few days earlier by the FBI in Chicago on 3 October 2009, the sources said.
According to the documents shared by the FBI, Headley had been asked by his handler, a Pakistani army official, that he should wind up his office, First World Office in Mumbai and “open up a new business centre in Delhi to be used as a cover for future activities”.
