David Headley mapped out the hierarchy of Lashkar-e-Taiba and provided valuable information on terrorist leaders inside Pakistan, US Federal Attorney told a court on Tuesday.

This information, given by Headley in the first two weeks after his arrest, was passed on to other governments, Vicky Peters said during closing arguments in the Rana case.

There is communication between terrorists in Pakistan and Headley wherein they knew that he was exchanging information with Pakistani-Canadian Tahawwur Rana, a co-accused in the 26/11 attacks, the Attorney said.

The Attorney defended the plea agreement with Headley under which he will not be given death sentence and will also not be extradited to Pakistan, India or Denmark, saying that this was in exchange for the cooperation extended by the Let operative.
