"The informal directives came after US-born Lashkar terrorist David Coleman Headley's confession that he recced several targets including the Sena Bhavan," a party source said. The foreigners have been always curious to know about Shiv Sena and its chief Bal Thackeray. Many students from other countries also keep coming to Sena Bhavan to study the party and its functioning, the source said.
Headley may have come here feigning one of them and recced the office, so as part of security measures, the decision was taken by the senior leaders, the source said. Headley had told interrogators from the National Investigation Agency that he filmed the outer boundary of the Prime Minister's residence (7, Race Course Road) during his trip to Delhi in March 2009.He also disclosed how Pakistani intelligence agency ISI had been behind the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, and made plans for other terror strikes in Delhi, Pune, Goa and Pushkar.
