The last visit of American terror suspect David Headley, before being arrested by the FBI, to India in March this year was to finalise synchronised terror strikes on Jewish houses located in five cities at the instance of terror outfit Lashker-e-Taiba.
Piecing together the travel trail of Headley during his visit to India in March this year, security agencies, who were briefed by FBI and US Department of Justice officials in New Delhi recently, are understood to have concluded that the US terror suspect was scouting only the Jewish targets including the El Al airlines office in Mumbai.
Government Takes Terror More Seriously
Taking serious note of the case of Pakistani-born American national David Coleman Headley, the government has said that the time has come to ‘think the unthinkable’ as terrorists were working on new strategies to break country’s security.
“As we have seen from the David Headley case that one can still slip through the radar. Because we are not looking for them. This is one of the big problem. Because nobody would look for a US citizen, with a US passport and a business visa, you would not think that he is a terrorist,” he said.
The Home Secretary said if it can happen to a US national, it can happen to citizen of any other country and favoured necessary steps to deal with such cases.
