Special public prosecutor, who is presently examining Headley, told PTI the deposition has been delayed temporarily due to a technical snag from their side.

However, it is still not clear if the deposition for the day will be cancelled.

Deposing from a undisclosed location yesterday, Headley told the special judge G A Sanap that ISI was helping different terror outfits in Pakistan by providing financial, military and moral support.

Terror outfits LeT, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen are given "financial" and "military" support by the ISI, Pakistani-American terrorist David Coleman Headley said yesterday as he made fresh revelations including about an aborted plan to target Indian defence scientists and famous Siddhivinayak temple here.

Deposing from a undisclosed location Headley told the special judge GA Sanap that ISI was helping different terror outfits in Pakistan by providing financial, military and moral support.

He also revealed that plans to target Mumbai had started over a year before November 26, 2008 and that LeT initially wanted to attack a conference of Indian defence scientists at Taj Mahal Hotel for which even a dummy of the hotel was prepared.

But the plan to target scientists was dropped because of logistical reasons, like difficulty in smuggling in weapons and personal and lack of details about the schedule of the meet, he said.

About plan to target Siddhivinayak Temple, Headley said that Sajid Mir (Headley's handler in LeT) specifically asked him to make video of it.

Headley also said that he also used to work for ISI and met many Pakistan army officials.

He also said that he had suggested to LeT founder Hafiz Saeed and Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi about dragging US government to court for banning LeT as a global terror outfit.

Headley is being examined as an approver in the 26/11 case.
