Following failing to question American national David Coleman Headley, team of Indian intelligence officials returned home disappointed.
FBI had arrested Headley on charges of plotting a major terror attacks in India at the behest of Pakistan-based LeT.
Reports said that officials of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) failed to interrogate Headley as there were some ‘bureaucratic’ and ‘procedural’ hurdles. Headley is lodged in Chicago jail.
According to FBI chargesheet, Headley, 49, was being used by the LeT to target among others the National Defence College in New Delhi, the Doon school in Dehradun and Woodstock school in Mussoorie.
The Indian team, names of members of which have not been revealed to the media so far, arrived in Washington on November 1 and was scheduled to grill Headley the next day.
However, the Indian team is believed to have spent most of their time in Washington and they could not make their planned trip to Chicago – where Headley and his co-conspirator Tahawwur Hussain Rana are lodged in a jail – to interrogate the duo, both Chicago-residents.
The team left for India through New York on November 8.
