ISI Was Eyeing Retired Indian Military Personnel: Headley

From Lalit K Jha

Washington, Jun 15 (PTI) Pakistan's spy agency ISI was planning recruitment of retired Indian military personnel to penetrate into the system and then use them for its anti-India activities, according to LeT operative David Headley.

Less than six months before the November 2008 Mumbai attacks, Major Iqbal, Headley's handler in ISI, asked him to put an advertisement in a Mumbai newspaper that an employment agency in Canada was looking for people to work in Canada, the LeT operative said in his testimony before a Chicago court during the recently-concluded trial of Tahawwur Rana.

This was to be a cover to hiring military personnel, at the direction of Major Iqbal who had earlier directed him to use the immigration business of Rana for the planning of 26/11 operation.
