Intelligence Team Got Good Info on Headley in US: Chidambaram

Home Minister P Chidambaram has revealed that the Indian intelligence team that visited the US in connection with investigation into suspected LeT operative David Coleman Headley’s terror plots have returned with “good information”.

However, he declined to divulge details arguing that probe was still underway.

“The team had a good visit. They have come back with good information,” Chidambaram told reporters in New Delhi.

He was responding to a query about the trip that officials from Intelligence Bureau and RAW undertook to the US last week to collect details of the terror plan of Headley.

In response to another question if Headley had any link to last year’s Mumbai terror attacks, the minster said: “This is not a cricket match which gives a ball-by-ball description. Investigation is on and once the investigating agency completes investigations, we will share whatever has to be shared.”

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) arrested Pakistani-born US citizen, Headley, 49, last month in Chicago and charged that he was part of a LeT plan to execute terror attacks in India.

Officials of IB and RAW went to the US last week and met FBI counterparts to get details of the plot and Headley’s contacts in India on the basis of his interrogation.

After the return of the Indian team, investigators in New Delhi have begun unravelling details of Headley’s visits to the capital and identifying people whom he had met in Mumbai, Delhi and other places.
