Apprehending arrest during his India visit after the Mumbai attacks, David Headley wrote a will and emailed it to his friend and co-accused Tahawwur Rana, as to what should be done to his wives and children in the event of his death or arrest.
“I am travelling and things are so bad these days, I would like to leave a few instructions with you in case of my death or if I am anticipated for some reason,” Headley wrote to Rana on March 3, 2009 in an email.
Headley said he was afraid of going back to India at this point of time because of increased surveillance. “Why?” he was asked. “Because I have been coming in and out of India before the (Mumbai) attacks, conducted the surveillance, (so I was) was concerned about being apprehended in India during the travel,” he said.
In the email he identifies his two wives as M1 and M2. “First of all M2. Please get her to Canada as soon as possible. Till that time comes, send her $350 per month through Pasha. Communicate with her through him and don’t give her your numbers, even if you call her, as the number doesn’t show up on card calls. When she does get the visa, give her Canadian $6,000 and ticket and instructions,” Headley said. “Regarding M1, sit with her and decide whether she should return home immediately, or after one year, or after two years. We will play this by ear if I am incapacitated, if I die then use your best judgment,” he wrote. Asian Age
