On Board PM`s Special Aircraft: Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday said Mumbai attack co-accused
David Headley has not `revealed` anything that India did not
know in a US court where he testified about role of Pakistan`s
intelligence agency ISI and terror outfit LeT in the carnage.
"Well, the trial of David Headley has not brought out
anything new that we did not know," Singh said in reply to a
question about Headley`s remarks during his testimony in the
trial of another 26/11 co-accused Tahawwur Rana in a Chicago
court.

The prime minister was asked how he looked at the
comments of Headley and whether it will have any impact on
India`s engagements with Pakistan and whether it can still
trust that country.
Rana, a Pakistani of American origin, has not pleaded
guilty and is facing the trial after he was slapped with 12
charges by the prosecution in connection with the Mumbai
attack that has killed 166 persons. Headley, a
Pakistani-American has pleaded guilty.

"The trial(in Chicago) is still on, we will study it
when the trial is completed. But as I said it has not revealed
anything which we do not know," he added.
