India to get access to Headley soon: FBI
Chicago, Apr 6: The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) official on Tuesday, Apr 6, said that Indian investigators would soon get access to US terror suspect David Headley.

Speaking to reporters, a Chicago FBI spokesman said, "In the plea agreement, Headley did agree to meet with Indian authorities. I think right now we are just trying to work out the logistics and scheduling of that."

The request was made by Indian authorities to question 49-year-old Headley in connection with Mumbai terror attacks.

"I am sure that will happen in the near future," the FBI official said.

When asked to who all would be present along with Headley when he is being interrogated, he said, "All that is something that is going to be worked out."

India is expected to get access to Headley within 30 days of sending a letter of request, which is being prepared.

On Monday, Apr 5, US Ambassador Timothy J Roemer had said that the issue of access to Headley was being dealt with at the highest level in the Obama administration.
