The ISI double agent provided the classified Indian training manuals and came up with a potential landing area, in Badhwar Park, claims a book
New Delhi : The Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Tuesday announced a probe into the allegation in a book by two foreign journalists about the hand of an Indian “super-agent” in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks by identifying the landing site in the city for the terrorists to Pakistan”s ISI intelligence agency.
“This is not to my knowledge but we will inquire into it,” he said at his monthly press conference when told about the revelation in the book ”The Siege”, by Adrian Levy and Cathy Scott-Clark, published last week.
“Honey Bee, the ISI double agent who had provided the classified Indian training manuals had come up with a potential landing area, in Badhwar Park, a fishing colony in south Mumbai, reporting that it was only patchily patrolled and was shielded from the road,” the book claimed, hinting for the first about the Indian mole behind the 26/11 attack.
It says LeT operative David Headley was given a 2-year course on surveillance and counter-intelligence by ISI and his handler, Major Iqbal of ISI, had given him what he described as classified Indian files obtained from within the Indian police and army establishment and revealed their training and limitations.
“The major boasted that they had a super agent at work in New Delhi who was known as Honey Bee. The major revealed that while he would guide Headley, the Mumbai operation would be run by LeT,” the book said.
