Karachi: Pakistan's former interior minister Rehman Malik has rubbished the testimony of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks convict David Coleman Headley about his alleged part in conducting the deadly massacre in November 2008.
According to The Express Tribune, Rehman Malik accused India of trying to defame Pakistan by concocting confessions out of Headley.
Brushing aside all "allegations levelled by India against Pakistan for ulterior motives", Malik said that Headley was planted by Indian intelligence agency RAW for executing the Mumbai attacks and then getting concocted statements from him.
He said that they have the details about who paid tickets, who funded him and how he recruited non-state actors from Pakistan for the attacks.
In his revelation during the deposition yesterday, Headley said that Pakistan's spy agency ISI provides financial, moral as well as military support to terror outfits like the LeT, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen.
Headley said that he was asked by the ISI to recruit Indian army men to spy for them.
On the first day of the deposition, he revealed the sequence of events and planning behind the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
Headley, one of the main conspirators in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, deposed as a witness in the case and admitted that he had come to the city with a false identity at the behest of his colleague and handler Sajid Mir, a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative.
Meanwhile, post a technical snag in video-conferencing, David Coleman Headley's deposition has been adjourned till Thursday.
