Karat laments India being denied access to Headley
Lucknow: CPM General Secretary Prakash Karat
on Wednesday lamented that India had been denied direct access to
Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley despite his role
being proved in the Mumbai terror attack and said the country
should have taken up the issue with US authorities.
"When Azmal Kasab was arrested, the FBI was given an
opportunity to interrogate him but despite David Headley`s
role having been proved in the Mumbai terror attack the Indian
team was not given permission for interrogating him", Karat
said talking to newspersons here today.
Putting emphasis on "mutually reciprocal" relations
between India and the US, the CPM leader said, "The government
should have taken a stand on the issue and applied enough
pressure on the US to gain access to Headley".
