Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani’s public relations officer on Saturday acknowledged that David Coleman Headley, a terror suspect detained in the US, is his half-brother, but dismissed as incorrect reports that his family is related to the Premier.

The officer, Danyal Gilani, said that Indian media reports “trying to establish a relationship between Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and the family of detained US terror suspect and my half-brother, Daood Gilani alias David Coleman Headley, is incorrect, misplaced and totally baseless”.

26/11 chargesheet

Ajmal Kasab and nine other terrorists who attacked Mumbai last year were in constant touch with top Lashkar-e-Tayyeba commanders in Pakistan during the strikes and received instructions to kill “political leaders, foreigners and prominent personalities of India”.

This was stated in a chargesheet filed against the seven suspects in custody in Pakistan, including 26/11 “mastermind” Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.
