Headley’s deposition: For Pakistan to expose conspiracy, says India

New Delhi, Feb 12 (IANS) Following Pakistani-American terrorist-turned-approver David Coleman Healdey’ deposition in which he revealed Pakistan’s role in the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack, India on Friday said it was for Pakistan to expose the conspiracy and bring the perpetrators to justice.

“David Headley’s testimony is in relation to the Mumbai terrorist attack and the testimony is self-explanatory,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup said in reply to a question at a media briefing here.

“We have always maintained that it is up to Pakistan to investigate and expose fully the conspiracy in Pakistan behind the Mumbai terrorist attack and to bring all concerned to justice,” he said.

Headley’s deposition once again confirms this if any confirmation was needed after Ajmal Kasab’s confirmation, Swarup said.

“As far as we are concerned this is a sworn testimony that he is giving that is admissible in a court of law and we will go by what he has to say,” Swarup said.

Ten terrorists of the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba carried out the horrifying November 2008 attack that left 166 people dead and hundreds injured.
