26/11 Mumbai terror attacks case: Four day cross-examination of David Headley to begin on 22 March

Mumbai: The cross-examination of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist-turned-approver in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks case, Pakistani-American David Coleman Headley, will start before a special court on 22 March for four days, a legal official said in Mumbai on Thursday.

Advocate Abdul Wahab Khan, lawyer of Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari, alias Abu Jundal, one of the prime accused in the 26/11 cases, will cross-examine Headley who had given a week-long deposition via video-conferencing from a US jail in early February.

Earlier, Khan had moved applications seeking certain documents and CDs pertaining to the case and also objected to Headley being made an approver in the 26/11 case.

The cross-examination will be conducted before special TADA court Judge GA Sanap.

On 13 February, Headley's week-long deposition covering a wide range of issues concerning the conspiracy and perpetrators of the 26/11 attacks, was completed by Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam.
