Following up on Mir's guidelines, Headley changed his name from Dawood Gilani to David Headley. He then applied for a U.S. passport with the changed name.

"So that I could enter with an American name and to conceal my identity," he said dismissing under the steady gaze of special judge G.A. Sanap by means of video conferencing from an undisclosed location in the U.S. 

Headley likewise said that Mir instructed him to go to India and set up an office keeping in mind the end goal to settle in India. He was additionally advised to make "a general video of the city of Mumbai."

In 2010, Headley was captured by the U.S. powers and he admitted to them about his part in the 26/11 assaults. In 2013, a U.S. court sentenced him to 35 years' detainment for twelve government terrorism wrongdoings identified with his part in the Mumbai assaults, including directing surveillance of target areas. Acting like an American, he made five stretched out treks to Mumbai — in September 2006, February and September 2007, and April and July 2008 — every time making tapes of different potential targets, incorporating those assaulted in November 2008.
