Islamabad, Jun.12 (ANI): Pakistan wants both India and the US to share details of the interrogation of David Coleman Headley, the alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative who is currently in America's detention, so that the 'myth' surrounding the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks is unearthed.

"Although India and the US are not bound to share findings of investigation, however, they need to share them with Pakistan in order to unearth the myth of Mumbai attack," The Nation quoted a top Pakistani official, as saying on conditions of anonymity.

However, there has been no official statement from Pakistan regarding sharing of details of Headley's interrogation.

A four-member National Investigation Agency (NIA) team quizzed Headley for over a week recently, drawing information about his role in the ghastly Mumbai attacks.

According to a statement issued by the US Justice Department, Headley and his counsel answered all queries of Indian investigators in a series of interviews starting June 3.

The statement further added that both New Delhi and Washington have agreed not to disclose any detail of Headley's interrogation inorder to protect the secrecy of the probe surrounding the November 2008 terror attack.

Headley was arrested by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in October 2009 for plotting an attack on a Danish newspaper.

During his interrogation, he also confessed to his role in the Mumbai attacks in which Pakistani terrorists killed 166 people and injured over 200 others.

Headley,49, told US interrogators that he had conducted a reconnaissance of the Mumbai sites before the attacks, having visited the country several times.

Headley has pleaded guilty on all 12 criminal counts against him, including his role in the 26/11 attacks conspiracy. (ANI)
