Chicago, Jun 8 (PTI) David Headley mapped out the hierarchy of Lashkar-e-Taiba and provided valuable information on terrorist leaders inside Pakistan, the US Federal Attorney told a court here.
This information, given by Headley in the first two weeks after his arrest in October 2009, was passed on to other governments, Vicky Peters said during closing arguments in the trial of Tahawwur Rana, a key accused in the Mumbai attacks.
There was communication between terrorists in Pakistan and Headley wherein they knew that he was exchanging information with Pakistani-Canadian Rana, the Attorney said.
He defended the plea agreement with Headley, a Pakistani-American, under which he will not be given death sentence and will also not be extradited to Pakistan, India or Denmark, saying that this was in exchange for the cooperation extended by the LeT operative.
