Headley planned to set up Delhi base in Nov

New Delhi, January 31: American terror suspect David Headley was scheduled to visit India again in November last year apparently to finalise the next target for Pakistan based Lashker-e-Taiba group and set up a base in Delhi.

Sources privy to the investigations said that 49-year-old Headley had told his friends in India that he was coming to the country in November for his business. Headley’s messages to his friends, who have recorded their statements before the National Investigation Agency, stopped in the last week of September, barely a few days before he was arrested by the FBI at O’Hare airport in Chicago on 3rd October last year, the sources said.

After recording the statements, the sleuths believe that since Lashker had postponed its planned terror strike on Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten because of international pressure following 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, Headley, who was arrested just before he could board a plane for Philadelphia en route to Pakistan, was coming to India for finalising the next target.
