New York: According to the New York Times report, in late 2008, Shah “roamed from outposts in the northern mountains of Pakistan to safe houses near the Arabian Sea, plotting mayhem in Mumbai, India’s commercial gem”.

He was, however, unaware that by September, the British were spying on many of his online activities.

“They were not the only spies watching. Shah drew similar scrutiny from an Indian intelligence agency,” it said. While the US was unaware of the two agencies’ efforts, it had picked up signs of a plot through other electronic and human sources.

There were a series of “missed signals” about Pakistani-American David Coleman Headley’s involvement in 26/11 even though he had exchanged “highly suspicious” emails with his LeT and ISI handlers before and after the assault.

It said Headley’s name “did not appear” in the “stacks of intelligence reports” from India, the US and UK that began piling up following the 26/11 attacks.
