Washington: As Indian investigators are in
the US hoping to quiz Pakistani-American terrorist David
Headley, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna today said
providing access to him is "is perhaps the logical next step."

In his opening remarks at the inauguration of the
first-ever Indo-US Strategic Dailogue, Krishna sought access
to Headley, who has pleaded guilty to plotting the deadly
Mumbai attacks.

Without naming 49-year-old Headley, Krishna said
giving access to people apprehended by the US in connection
with the attacks "is perhaps the logical next step."

India has been seeking access to Headley, currently
lodged in a Chicago prison, to unravel the entire conspiracy
surrounding the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The US has assured India
that it would give access to him.

President Barack Obama had in April assured Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh that India would get direct access to
Headley.

Krishna`s comments assume significance in the wake of
a team from India`s National Investigation Agency (NIA)
currently camping in the US hoping to quiz Headley.

US officials have been tight-lipped about giving
access to Indian investigators.
