Pak woman stayed with Headley as wife in Taj hotel
New Delhi: Investigators probing the role of
David Headley in India have stumbled upon the evidence that a
Pakistani woman stayed with the US terror suspect as his wife
at Mumbai`s Taj hotel, a target of Lashkar-e-Taiba militants
during the 26/11 attacks last year.
While government sources refused to give any further
information, well placed sources within the investigating
agency do not rule out the possibility that the woman, who
visited India in 2007 posing as Headley`s wife, could have
been used for carrying out recce of the targets.
This information was shared with the FBI which allegedly
feigned ignorance about the same.
The woman travelled to Mumbai from Pakistan alone and
stayed in the five star hotel for a few days before returning
to the neighbouring country, the sources said.
Investigators suspect that the woman could be a
Lashkar-e-Taiba activist and might have brought some documents
along with her for Headley.
The sources also said the FBI has informed the Indian
investigators that Headley was trained by Pakistan Army
personnel to conduct a recce of the terror attack targets in
The Home Ministry, in the meantime, has issued an
advisory to all states, where Headley had visited, alerting
them that some of their vital installations could be targeted
by terrorists, the sources said.
