FBI team may share details of Headley's association in Mumbai

Information on US terror suspect David Headley's links with several people in the country including Rahul, son of film maker Mahesh Bhatt, and some diplomats are expected to be shared by the FBI during the visit of its team to India later this week.

After handing over preliminary affidavits and some brief information, FBI had informed their Indian counterparts that further information would be made available only after further interrogation of US-born Headley and his Pakistani-Canadian accomplice Tahawwur Rana.

The Indian security agencies had sought all the details about Headley's links with Rahul, gym instructor Vilas Varak, some diplomats and business personalities who were allegedly misused by the terror suspect, sources privy to the investigations said today.

Headley and Rana were arrested by the FBI from Chicago last month for allegedly plotting terror strikes in Denmark and India. However, Rana's advocate has denied the allegations made against his client.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA), probing the case, has already recorded statements of various people including Varak during which he told the investigators about various activities of Headley. The US terror suspect had changed his name to Headley in 2006 from Daood Gilani to avoid suspicion.
