Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE - Charul Shah charul.shah@hin­dus­tan­times.com

MUM­BAI: Pak­istani- Amer­i­can LeT op­er­a­tive David Cole­man Headley had plot­ted a Shiv Sena fundraiser in the US and in­vited party leader Bal Thack­eray. There was no known in­ten­tion to kill Thack­eray there, even though he was on the out­fit’s hitlist.

Headley, who was ar­rested in Chicago for his role in the 2008 Mum­bai at­tacks, told a Mum­bai ses­sions court via video link from an undis­closed US prison that the LeT knew about his fundraiser plan. “How­ever, that plan never hap­pened,” the 55-year-old said in re­ply to de­fence lawyer Ab­dul Wa­hab Khan’s ques­tions about plans to kill Thack­eray.
