New Delhi, Mar 19: Even after the Pakistani American terrorist David Coleman Headley struck a deal with US prosecutors so that he may not be extradited to India, New Delhi on Friday, Mar 19 stated that it will continue to push its extradition plea.
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.
