The National Investigation Agency (NIA) team, headed
by Loknath Behera, is putting up at a city hotel and repeated
efforts to contact and speak to its members have been in vain.
The hotel, where the team is staying, had initially
confirmed that the names of Loknath Behera and Dayan Krishnan
is listed in its records.
However, in an apparent move to avoid the media, the
team members have removed their names from the hotel guest
list and now the hotel staff says no one by these names is
staying in the hotel.
The team, comprising Behera, who is an IG rank
official, special public prosecutor Dayan Krishnan and two
superintendents, has been in Chicago for the past four days
but has remained elusive as it questions Headley, held in the
federal lock Metropolitan Correctional Centre.
While the team has had access to Headley, the duration
of the interrogation and number of times the team would get to
meet the Pakistani-American is unclear.
US authorities, including FBI official and the
Attorney's office, have remained tight-lipped about the details
of the access.
Chicago: The four-member team of Indian
investigators, here to question LeT operative David Coleman
Headley, has remained elusive and has been dodging the media
since they arrived in the US a week ago.
