New Delhi: A team of Indian investigators
will travel to the US next week to question David Coleman
Headley, arrested by the FBI for plotting terror-attacks
overseas, including India.

The team comprising officials of Intelligence Bureau (IB)
and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) will travel to the US to
question Headley next week, official sources said here today.

They said the US has already shared with India some
information gathered during the investigation of the case and
interrogation of Headley.

The US has also sought cooperation of India to further
collaborate the information provided to them by the American
national, who was arrested early this month by FBI`s Joint
Terrorism Task Force at O`Hare International Airport before
boarding a flight to Philadelphia, intending to travel to
Pakistan.

The team will also try to get information about
Pakistani-Canadian Tahawwur Hussain Rana, 48, also known as
Tahawar Rana, who was arrested along with Headley, the sources
said.

According to the FBI affidavit filed in a Chicago court,
Headley was in close contact with Ilyas Kashmiri and several
unidentified leaders of LeT.

Kashmiri is the operational chief of Pakistan-occupied
Kashmir section of Harakat-ul Jihad Islami (HuJI), a
Pakistani-based terrorist organisation having links with
al-Qaeda.
