Don't believe an iota of what Headley disclosed to India, says Pervez Musharraf

New Delhi: Former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf refuted all the claims made by LeT stooge David Coleman Headley regarding ISI's hand in the Mumbai attacks and said that he “don't believe an iota of whatever he is saying”.

“I don't believe in whatever he is saying, unless our investigation and our intelligence are saying the same,” Musharraf said adding “He can be manipulated and he can be forced to say anything while in your custody.”

Asked that such a grave issue can't be trashed as simply as that, Musharraf said: “No comments at all, I will not go along with the statements of one witness who is in your custody, he will blurt out anything you want him to say.”

Musharraf made the comments during an interview with India Today news channel.

Hadley on Friday, while deposing at a Mumbai court, had revealed the names of ISI officers who tasked him on what he should do when he visits India and where he could get his money from. During the course of his deposition, he named several senior Pakistani military officials who were in touch with him like Brigadier Riyaz, Colonel Shah, Colonel Hamza, Major Samar Ali etc.

Referring to PM Narendra Modi's recent visit to Pakistan, Musharraf said, “It reeks of hypocrisy and artificiality, because there is no substance, we don't know here at all if they have addressed any substantial issue... other than shaking hands and wishing each other happy birthday and all."

Headley is currently serving a 35-year jail term in the US in connection with the 26/11 case.
