India to ask US for Headley's extradition after chargesheet

Union Home Secretary G K Pillai said investigation with regard to Headley, who had allegedly conducted recce and made videos of 26/11 targets before passing them to the Lashkar-e-Taiba attackers, was being done by the National Investigation Agency.

"When our investigation is complete, we will file a chargesheet in an Indian court. After filing the chargesheet, we will take a warrant of arrest. After getting the warrant of arrest, we will approach America (for extradition)," he told reporters here on way to Darjeeling on Sunday.
