Mumbai, Feb 12 (IANS) Pakistani-American terrorist-turned-approver David Coleman Headley on Friday said he had recced Shiv Sena Bhavan in Dadar West in Mumbai with the intention to target the building and the then party supremo Bal Thackeray.

He said he developed close links with Rajaram Rege, who was the public relations officer to Bal Thackeray’s son Uddhav, now the Shiv Sena chief, and visited the Bhavan twice.

“I took videos of the Shiv Sena Bhavan from outside and inside… I thought the LeT would be interested in attacking it or even carry assassination of its head (Bal Thackeray)… I provided two-three videos to Sajid Mir and Major Iqbal,” Headley told Special TADA Court Judge G.A. Sanap.

Later, through a person named Vilas he met actor Rahul Bhatt, son of veteran film-maker Mahesh Bhatt based in Mumbai, Headley said.

He met Rahul Bhatt during a body-building competition at the Moksha Gym, of which Vilas was in-charge.
