Police probe Headley's link with 26/11 attacks

 
“Yes, we are investigating the role of David Coleman Headley in this matter. However, so far we have not found any evidence linking him to the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rakesh Maria said. Asked about the extent of the suspected involvement of Headley –– who is said to have visited Mumbai several times prior to the terror attacks –– Maria said that was also being probed.

So far, the Mumbai police have not made any specific references to the possibility of local support to the 10 LeT terrorists who plotted and carried out the 26/11 terror attacks. Of the 10 heavily armed terrorists who came here from the Arabian Sea route and attacked Mumbai, only one, Kasab, was nabbed.

Headley, a Pakistan-born US citizen, and his associate Tahawwur Hussain Rana had visited Mumbai several times. They ran an agency called Immigration Law Centre in the Tardeo air-conditioned market in south Mumbai which facilitates travel documents.
