26/11 accused,David Coleman Headley even as stating on Aurangabad arms drag case exposed that LeT was setting up to carry out attacks in Mumbai and Gujarat and its operatives had smuggled the weapons from Nepal.

As per the ATS official said that, “The said consignments were then brought to Aurangabad area by road itself, a source in the security establishment said. "They were on their way to do something as big as 26/11, but timely intelligence input helped us to bust the module and thwart LeT's plan”

KP Raghuvanshi, who is the ATS chief, said that, “In 2006, after the amount of arms and explosives that were seized, one could have only imagined what damage the group could have done. It was such a deadly seizure. Over 40 kilograms of RDX were seized. Even if they could have used half a kilogram of RDX at one place, they could have targeted at least 80 places,"
