Mumbai: 26/11 Mumbai terror attack accused David Coleman Headley is likely to be produced in a Mumbai court by video conferencing on Thursday.

Headley, who confessed to his role in the 26/11 attacks to the US authorities, was sentenced to 35 years’ imprisonment by a US court.

Headley, accused of conducting a special reconnaissance of targets before the Mumbai terror attack, was sentenced to 35 years’ imprisonment by the US court.

He had entered into a plea bargaining agreement with the US government.

The horrific Mumbai terrorist attacks on November 26, 2008 had killed as many as 166 persons. (ANI)
