'Rana photographed key installations in Kochi'

November 17, 2009 16:03 IST

Terror suspect Tahawur Hussain Rana has shot pictures of vital installations at Kochi when he toured the Kerala town, say National Investigating Agency officials.    

Rana -- on a cruise on the Arabian Sea for at least thirty minutes -- photographed Cochin Port trust, Vallarpadom Containor Terminal and Cochin Shipyard, sources said, adding that the terror suspect hired a private boat instead of vessels available with the Taj Residency, where he stayed. 

The NIA team is also probing the role played by two Pakistani Embassy officials in New Delhi in providing satellite phones to both Rana and Headley.
