US has refused to make any remarks on the revelations made by Pakistani-American terrorist David Coleman Headley to Indian investigators, on ISI's involvement in the Mumbai terror attack.

"I don't see how I can comment from here. Anything I would say would either compromise intelligence information or an ongoing legal investigation," State Department spokesman, PJ Crowley told reporters during his daily press briefing.

A four member team of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in June had done a week-long interrogation and questioning of Headley who pleaded guilty to conspiring in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 persons.

The NIA team headed by investigator Loknath Behera was granted access to Headley, at the request of the Indian gvernment, when the Federal Bureau of Investigation found that the Pakistani-American LeT operative Headley was involved in planning the Mumbai terror attack.
