David Headley, the terror suspect arrested by FBI, will soon be charged separately by Mumbai Police for allegedly conducting recce of targets hit by Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist in the metropolis in last year's audacious attacks.

The decision to file a supplementary chargesheet in the 26/11 case comes after the FBI approached the Chicago court in the US and gave details about the reconnaissance missions carried out by the American national at the behest of Lashkar.

Official sources said the Indian investigators had enough proof of Headley, who is of Pakistani origin, conducting surveillance of targets in Mumbai for more than two years preceding the November 26, 2008 terrorist attack and all evidences found during the probe on him would be incorporated in the supplementary chargesheet.

However, the additional chargesheet will be filed by the Mumbai Police Crime Branch only after Indian investigators get access to interrogate Headley, arrested by FBI and now under US custody.

During his multiple visit to India, Headley is accused of taking pictures and making videotapes of various places, including those targeted on 26/11 by terrorists belong to LeT.

After each trip Headley undertook to India between September 2006 and July 2008, he is believed to have returned to Pakistan, met other co-conspirators and provided them with photographs, videos and oral descriptions of various locations.

Headley's name did not feature in the chargesheet filed by Mumbai police in connection with the terror attacks.
