Following are excerpts from the FBI chargesheet against LeT operative Daood Gilani aka David Coleman Headley, which was filed in a Chicago court yesterday
After learning from members of Lashkar in late 2005 that he would be travelling to India to perform surveillance, Headley changed his name from Daood Gilani, on February 15, 2006, in Philadelphia.
He did so to present himself as an American, who is neither Muslim or Pakistani.
Headley misrepresented his birth name, father's true name and the purpose of his travel in his visa application.
He then made five extended trips to Mumbai in September 2006, February and September 2007, and April and July 2008 each time taking pictures and making videotapes of various targets, including those attacked in November 2008.
Besides, he allegedly conducted surveillance of the National Defense College in Delhi.
Headley was charged in a 12-count criminal information with six counts of conspiracy to bomb public places in India, and maim persons in India and Denmark (plotting an attack on a Danish newspaper that published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in 2005).
Starting Nov 26, 2008, and continuing through Nov 28, 2008, 10 attackers carried out multiple assaults in Mumbai, which Headley allegedly had scouted in advance.
