Samraz, the wife of Mumbai attacks co-accused Tahawwur Rana, said that India was her second home and there was no reason her husband would have planned to attack that country.

Refuting LeT operative David Headley’s claims that Rana was very close to him and had helped him plot the Mumbai terror attacks of 2008, Samraz said, Headley was just an “Urdu speaking American friend” to her family who had claimed to have reformed following drug addiction issues and arrests.

“India is my second home and my mother is from India. All my relations are from India and they live in Meerut, Ghaziabad and Delhi,” Samraz said, asking why would then her husband plot an attack on that country.

She also said that the Indian media had exaggerated facts and even given certain incorrect reports in connection with the case, unlike the American media which has been more reasonable in covering it.

“Indian media exaggerates a lot. They have to see the truth first,” she said.
