LeT operative David Coleman Headley told a US court on Wednesday that he had conducted a surveillance of the German Bakery in Pune and identified Chabad houses in Delhi, Pushkar and Pune which could be bombed.

Testifying during the trial of Tahawwur Hussain Rana, he said he had made a video of the German Bakery in Pune, which was bombed on February 13, 2010 — when Headley was in FBI custody — killing 17 people and injuring 60 others.

The blast was a part of the Karachi Project — an LeT venture with the Indian Mujahideen.

Headley had initially told FBI that he did not carry out surveillance of the bakery, but later confessed to the Indian agents of National Investigation Agency that he had surveilled it.

Headley, who ended his testimony, also said that he had made a list of Chabad houses in Delhi, Pushkar and Pune which could be targeted.
