ISI eyed BARC staff for classified information: Headley

Mumbai, Feb 12 (IANS) Exposing plans to subvert the Indian nuclear establishment, Pakistani-American terrorist-turned-approver David Coleman Headley on Friday said that the ISI eyed staff of the sensitive Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in Mumbai to procure “classified information” from them.

Continuing his deposition for the fifth day via videoconference before Special TADA Court Judge G.A. Sanap, Headley told Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam that he has carried out a surveillance and also videographed the BARC headquarters in Mumbai.

“The Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) wanted to recruit the BARC staffers for future; to get classified information from them,” Headley, 56 said from a US jail where he is undergoing a 35-year sentence.

He had handed over the videos to his main contact in LeT Sajid Mir and ISI’s Major Iqbal and also carried out surveillance of the famed Siddhi Vinayak Temple in Dadar and the Naval Air Station.
