India is planning to step up pressure on Pakistan citing the statements given by 26/11 accused David Headley in court as fresh evidence in the case. As per sources, Indian government wants Pakistan to act as Headley's testimony confirms the role of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and its Army in the 26/11 attacks case.
Meanwhile, Pakistani-American terrorist David Coleman Headley continued his deposition for the third day before a court in Mumbai on Thursday.
Deposing from an undisclosed location in the US, Headley had told special judge GA Sanap that ISI was helping different terror outfits in Pakistan and was providing financial, military and moral support.
The deposition of Headley had to be suspended on Wednesday due to a technical snag in the video conference in the US.
While spilling beans about involvement of Pakistan's army and intelligence agency in terrorism in India, he said he knew ISI official Brigadier Riyaz being the handler of LeT's top commander Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, who was the mastermind of 26/11 attacks.
Headley, who had visited Mumbai seven times to scout for targets, revealed that plans to target Mumbai had started over a year before 26/11.
