Washington, Dec 17 (ANI): The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) on Thursday has rebuffed all reports claiming Pakistani-origin US national David Coleman Headley; accused in the 26/11 terror attacks of being a CIA agent.

CIA spokesperson Marie E Harf denied that Headley had connections with the CIA, when posed questions related to Headley's links with the CIA.

"I can't comment on an ongoing investigation, but any suggestion that this individual worked for the CIA is flat wrong," said the CIA spokesperson.

Headley is one of the two Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operatives arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in October. The FBI got Headley while he was planning to head towards Pakistan via Philadelphia.

There are charges against him of plotting a major terror attack against India that left 166 people dead in Mumbai.

CIA spokesperson Marie E Harf also avoided commenting on the ongoing Headley-Rana case asserting that the case is being probed. (ANI)
