The cross-examination of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist, the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack master mind, Pakistani-American David Coleman Headley, before a special court will start on March 22 for four days, a legal official said.

Advocate Abdul Wahab Khan, lawyer of Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari, alias Abu Jundal, one of the prime accused in the 26/11 cases, will cross-examine Headley who had given a week-long affidavit via video-conferencing from a US jail in early February.

Earlier, Khan had moved applications seeking certain documents and CDs pertaining to the case and also objected to Headley being made an approver in the 26/11 case.

The cross-examination will be conducted before special TADA court Judge G.A. Sanap.

On February 13, Headley’s week-long deposition covering a wide range of issues concerning the conspiracy and perpetrators of the 26/11 attacks, was completed by Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam.
