The documentary is the latest in the channel’s Frontline series and tells the story of David Headley, who was instrumental in the planning of the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack. Described as the deadliest terrorist attack since 9/11, the attacks on Mumbai were carried out by the Pakistani terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba, with support from Pakistan’s ISI (Inter Services Intelligence Directorate) and resulted in the deaths of 168 people. Headley, a US citizen, travelled to Mumbai to prepare for the attacks, his movements were not under suspicion at the time as he was informing on drug deals for the DEA.
