Pakistani-American David Coleman Headley had participated in terror camps being run by LeT in Pakistan despite promises by the then President Parvez Musharraf in 2002 to the Bush Administration that all such facilities will be shut down.

Headley, a LeT operative arrested in October 2009 by the FBI, had attended five such training camps run abated by
the terror outfit between 2002-03, according to a Headley's plea agreement document which was submitted by US Attorney,
Patrick J FitzGerald before a Chicago court on Thursday.

He attended a three-week course starting in February 2002 that provided indoctrination on the merits of waging
jihad, next he participated in a three-week course starting in August 2002 to get training in the use of weapons and grenades

Headley learnt about close combat tactics, the use of weapons and grenades and survival skills during a three-month
course in starting April 2003; he got training about the counter-surveillance skills starting August 2003 and starting
December 2003 he received combat and tactical training.

Notably in January 2002, Musharraf had said that he would not allow LeT to carry any anti-India activity inside
Pakistan.

But LeT ran terrorist training camps unabated even as Musharraf conducted back channel negotiations with India on
the resolution of the Kashmir problem between 2002-2006, the agreement said.
