Mumbai 26/11 terror attack: Abu Jundal seeks to make David Headley's wife, friend co-accused in case

Mumbai: The lawyer of Abu Jundal, an alleged key plotter of 2008 Mumbai terror attack, on Wednesday filed an application before the sessions court in Mumbai seeking to make Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley's wife Shazia and his friend Tahawwur Hussain Rana accused in the case.

The court has granted pardon to Headley, who is currently in prison in the US, and allowed him to depose in 26/11 terror attack trial as an approver for the prosecution.

"We have moved an application seeking to make both of them accused as Headley, in his deposition, had said that both knew about the attack before November 26, 2008. Headley also said he even got congratulatory message from Shazia (after the attack)," said Jundal's lawyer Khan Abdul Wahab.

The application is likely to be heard tomorrow.

Headley concluded his week-long deposition through video-link on February 13. He is likely to be cross-examined by Khan from March 22.

Among other things, Headley told the court here that Pakistani intelligence agency ISI provides "financial, military and moral support" to terror outfits LeT, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen. He also described how LeT planned and executed the 26/11 attack in Mumbai.
