Headley had ‘hatred’ towards India: Wikileaks

New Delhi: American-born Lashker-e-Taiba terrorist David Headley, accused of plotting Mumbai terror attack in 2008, had “hatred” towards India and warned that he would stop helping the probe if his admission of guilt was linked to cooperation with New Delhi.

According to a secret US embassy cable made public by Wikileaks, this was conveyed by FBI Director Robert Mueller during his meeting with Home Minister P Chidambaram in February this year.

“Noting that the process of Headley?s proffer of evidence is nearing a critical stage, Mueller observed that Headley has expressed hatred toward India and may clam up if his guilty plea is tied in any way to cooperation with the Government of India,” the leaked cable by categorised as “secret” US envoy to India Timothy Roemer said.
