David Coleman Headley

David Headley wanted an assignment in Kashmir after completing training in Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba’s (LeT) camps there. But he was not given his favourite assignment as the Lashkar leaders wanted to use him for something else, according to court documents released during the ongoing trial here of Pakistan-born Canadian businessman Tahawwur Rana. The documents say Headley began attending LeT training camps in Pakistan in February 2002 and by December 2003 had attended five separate courses. PTI

Rana wanted Pak military honours for 26/11 attackers

washington: Apparently gloating over the mayhem the Pakistani attackers were creating in Mumbai, Tahawwur Rana, a co-accused had proposed that nine of the ten LeT militants who carried out the carnage should be decorated with Pakistan’s highest military award, Nishan-e-Haider. This was stated by David Headley, another prime accused in the Mumbai case in his testimony before the Chicago district court on the third day of the trial of his childhood friend, Rana. Nishan-e-Haider, is Pakistan’s highest military decoration given to personnel, regardless of rank, for extraordinary bravery in combat. PTI
