Chicago, Jun 10: The Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operative, David Coleman Headley, who is being interrogated by a team of Indian sleuths in connection with the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, has reportedly revealed some crucial information on the larger conspiracy that led to the attack on India's financial capital in Nov 2008.

Quoting sources, a news agency reported that the questioning of the Pakistani-American terrorist by the four-member team of National Investigative Agency (NIA) team is on and is expected to continue as the investigative officers try to grill out information regarding the LeT's plans regarding terror attacks in India.

"The interrogation is going on. Its details can't be revealed as this is not cricket where ball-by-ball account can be provided," a source is quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, another media report has revealed that Headley has given out information on ISI"s direct role in the Mumbai attacks.

Sources in NIA apparently told the Times News Network that Pakistan"s semi-rogue spy agency 'planned and guided' the Mumbai carnage, in which over 200 people were killed and hundreds others injured.

After the attacks, the ISI reportedly tried to shift the blame on al-Qaedand and asked LeT to do the same.

The Times report added that Lashkar, which attained a large terror profile after the Mumbai attack, refused to cooperate with ISI as it feared that distancing itself from the 26/11 attacks would led to roadblocks in procuring funds and in the recruitment process.

Besides this, the names of Lashkar leaders, a former Pakistani military official Sheikh Abdul Rehman Saeed and Sajid Mir cropped up as the handlers of US based jihadis including Headley and his Pakistani-Canadian co-accused Tahawwur Hussain Rana.
