Mumbai terror attack convict David Headley's deposition which entered the third day today before the Mumbai court, was cancelled for the day due to technical glitch in video conferencing.

In his revelation during the deposition on Tuesday, Headley said that Pakistan's spy agency ISI provides financial, moral as well as military support to terror outfits like the LeT, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen.

Headley said that he was asked by the ISI to recruit Indian army men to spy for them.

On the first day of the deposition, he revealed the sequence of events and planning behind the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

Headley, one of the main conspirators in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, deposed as a witness in the case and admitted that he had come to the city with a false identity at the behest of his colleague and handler Sajid Mir, a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative.

Headley further admitted that he was a true follower of the LeT and had changed his name from Dawood Gilani to David Coleman Headley for the purpose of acquiring a new passport to come to India. He said he had visited Mumbai seven times prior to the attacks on November 26, 2008. He even visited Delhi in March 2009 after the attacks.
