Speaking the media after a cabinet meeting presided over by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said that the Indian government would first "wait and see" and then continue to pursue its case to extradite or get access to Headley.
"It is not a setback. We have not yet charged Headley. We will charge Headley at an appropriate time," Chidambaram said.
The Pakistan-origin American citizen Headley on Thursday, Mar 18 pleaded guilty to all the terror charges before a Chicago court. He was charged with conspiracy involving the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, murdering persons in India, providing material support to foreign terrorist plots and the Pakistan-based Lask-e-Toiba (LeT), aiding and abetting the murder of US citizens in India.
