Port of Spain, Nov 29: India's National Security Adviser M K Narayanan has said that New Delhi has no plans to interrogate either David Coleman Headley, Tahawwur Hussain Rana, in connection with 26/11.

M K Narayanan, said here that the United States "is going to send a high powered team from FBI with details of the Headley-Rana interrogation."

"They have exhaustive information and President Obama has instructed the FBI to share everything with us (Indian Government)," Narayanan told to ANI.

He also revealed that the issue of counter-terrorism did come up for discussion during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's meeting with President Obama.

"Counter-terrorism did come up for discussions between Obama and the Prime Minister. In particular, about the hubs that are coming up in our neighbourhood. It also came up in the Headley-Rana case," the National Security Adviser said.

Narayanan said, "The (US) President promptly said 'we are seized of the matter, we are willing to fully cooperate with whatever information is available. We will send a high-level team with all the data that is available, and this will be with the Indian authorities in a week's time'".

"This sums up what General James Jones said. Headley-Rana, any interrogation agency would love to interrogate people, but we can work around it. The Home Minister (P Chidambaram) and I will speak to the Director of FBI (Robert S. Mueller III). But, we have already been able to glean a whole lot of information.

Narayanan's comments came a day after British intelligence agencies said they had tipped off the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) about Headley, days before he was arrested.
