‘Shameless’ Pak should immediately imprison main actors of 26/11: Congress

New Delhi: The Congress Party on Wednesday said David Coleman Headley’s revelation in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks has confirmed the complete nexus of Pakistan and asked the concerned authorities in Islamabad to immediately imprison the main actors and players of this sad and sorry tale.

Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said there is nothing left to be said post Headley’s revelation in this case, adding that the latter has only confirmed what everybody knew and believed in for decades.

“The complete nexus of Pakistan, the direct involvement of Pakistan. This is a terrible terrible situation of a country exporting terrorism,” Singhvi told ANI here.

“At least now, the relevant authorities there should be shamed into immediate action, urgent action and the minimum that action requires is immediate imprisonment of the main actors and players of this sad and sorry tale,” he added.

Meanwhile, Headley’s deposition has been adjourned till Thursday post a technical snag in video-conferencing.

“Today Headley was supposed to give evidence through video link. But unfortunately, on account of technical problems from the American side, they could not contact us and now it has been informed to us that the matter will be adjourned till tomorrow,” Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam told ANI.

Nikam added that the hearing would take place from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. tomorrow.

In his revelation during the deposition yesterday, Headley said that Pakistan’s spy agency ISI provides financial, moral as well as military support to terror outfits like the LeT, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen.

Headley said that he was asked by the ISI to recruit Indian army men to spy for them.

On the first day of the deposition, he revealed the sequence of events and planning behind the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

Headley, one of the main conspirators in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, deposed as a witness in the case and admitted that he had come to the city with a false identity at the behest of his colleague and handler Sajid Mir, a Lashkar-e-Taiba ( LeT) operative. (ANI)
