NIA also quizzed Headley’s New York-based cousin, to whom the questionnaire was sent via the US Department of Justice

New Delhi: Faiza Outalha, an estranged wife of American-born Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operative David Headley, has replied to all questions of National Investigation Agency (NIA) relating to her knowledge of the conspiracy behind 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

Besides Outalha, the probe agency also recorded the statement of a New York-based cousin of Headley for a questionnaire sent through the US Department of Justice, official sources said.

Headley, who currently undergoing a prison term of 35 years in a Chicago jail for conspiring the terror attacks in Mumbai and Denmark, had started a video parlour in New York in 1997.

The legal process of quizzing Outalha concluded only after the NIA sent a fresh request in French to Moroccan authorities for recording her statement pertaining to her knowledge of her estranged husband’s association with LeT terror group.
