With FBI finding out that David Coleman Headley and Tahawwur Rana were linked to Mumbai attacks, India on Wednesday said it is awaiting further information from the US with regard to probe against Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives arrested in Chicago in October.

"We are awaiting reports from the US. We are hoping to hear more from their intelligence agencies to our intelligence agencies. We are awaiting that report," External Affairs Minister S M Krishna told reporters outside Parliament.

He was responding when asked about India's future course of action after US agencies found during investigations that Headley and Rana were involved in the Mumbai terror attacks.

In a charge-sheet filed in a US court, FBI has said Headley, a US citizen of Pakistani origin, and Rana, a Canadian citizen of Pakistani descent, knew that the attackers of 26/11 and were aware of their terror strike in advance.

US prosecutors have filed a third memorandum in which they said that according to a conversation between Rana and Headley in a "long car ride", it has come to light that Rana "was told in advance that the attacks in Mumbai were to happen" and in fact "offered compliments and congratulations to those who carried them out afterwards".
