Less than a month after the unprecedented terror strikes in Mumbai, US' FBI has completed its probe in India and found evidence of a Pakistan security establishment being involved in the carnage and its team was likely to go there to prepare a chargesheet against the guilty.

As the FBI winds up the probe that commenced on December one, the top US Intelligence official John Michael McConnell, who heads the Director of National Intelligence, air dashed to the national capital and held series of meetings with the FBI team probing the case.

The FBI is understood to have found evidence about the role of a Pakistani security establishment other than the ISI being involved in the November 26 terror strikes in Mumbai that left over 180 people dead including six American nationals, official sources said.

While the name of the Pakistan establishment involved in the attack was not clear immediately, the sources did not rule out the possibility of active and direct involvement of its Army.

The sources said McConnell has passed on the findings of FBI team to the officials in the Government and the US probe agency would now be giving final touches to chargesheet in which it would be naming the accused persons.

The FBI had registered a case in the Mumbai terror strikes as according to the US laws, the agency had to file a chargesheet in case of a death or torture of any American national outside the country.
