A Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) team is likely to be in the country next week to probe the India links of David Coleman Headley, the Pakistan born American national in custody in the US.

The team, which may arrive days ahead of the first anniversary of the Nov 26 Mumbai terror strike, will probe Headley's network in India and also establish his links with the Pakistan based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Indian intelligence officials here said.

Information provided by the FBI has revealed that Headley operated a visa agency in Mumbai for almost two years until July 2008 and had travelled to India on business visas nine times between 2006 and 2009.

Intelligence shared by the FBI following the interrogation of Headley revealed that two of India's most prestigious boarding schools - Doon in Dehradun and Woodstock in Mussoorie - and the National Defence College in New Delhi were supposed targets of the LeT.

For now, there is no plan for FBI director Robert Mueller to visit India, said a US embassy spokesperson.
