Security agencies probing the David Headley terror case have not given a clean chit to anyone, including filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt's son Rahul, who had an acquaintance with the US national arrested by FBI for plotting attacks in India at the LeT's behest.

"We have not given clean chit to anyone. Investigation is still on," Union Home Secretary G K Pillai told reporters on the sideline of a function in New Delhi.

Meanwhile, a team of National Investigating Agency reached Mumbai on Saturday to probe the activities of Headley and Tahawwur Hassan Rana, a Canadian of Pakistani origin who has also been arrested by FBI in connection with the plot.

The duo were arrested for suspected links with Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba, which had carried
out the Mumbai carnage last year that left 183 people dead.

Asked about police failure to get an inkling about the plot while the two were in Mumbai to do a recce ahead of the 26/11 attacks, Pillai said, "Primarily they had come before November 26, 2008, that is why."
