US tells India Headley opposed to further questioning
New Delhi: Mumbai terror attack accused David Headley, who is currently in American custody, has been opposing his further interrogation by Indian investigators.
This was conveyed by Washington to New Delhi held here today during Indo-US strategic dialogue after India had consistently asked the US to give access to Headley for a second time to get more information about the November 2008 audacious attack.
The US interlocutors have cited Headley's plea bargain with the American authorities (under which a person avoids death penalty by confessing to the crime) and indicated its difficulty in allowing Indian investigators to further question Headley, who had carried out the recce of the 26/11 targets for the Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, official sources said.
Expressing serious concern over the ongoing protests in Andhra Pradesh, following the nod for the creation of a separate Telangana State, the Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said that the Centre must address the genuine concerns of the people and assure them that their interests will be duly protected.
