Central security agencies have located the mobile phone number used by David Headley during his stay in Mumbai. The clue to the mobile phone used by Headley was given by a 38-year-old Parsi lady who was working with him at his immigration services office set up in Mumbai, official sources said.

The security agencies have started analysing the call records of Headley who was arrested by the FBI on October three for allegedly hatching a conspiracy with Pakistan-based terror group Lashker-e-Taiba to carry out strikes inside and outside the U.S.

This may also help the security agencies to ascertain whether disappeared cadres of banned SIMI and Indian Mujahideen had used Headley’s immigration services.

The phone number had come as a boost to the sleuths who were rattled by the fact that Headley, who came to India nine times since 2006-07, had wound up the entire immigration business in April this year and they could not get single information about the functioning of his business and clients.
