India to seek Headley's extradition

National Security Adviser Shivshankar Menon, who is accompanying the Prime Minister, will raise the issue during his meeting with his counterpart Gen (Retd) James Jones.
“We will keep pushing...This will be one of the issues...we will use every occasion to seek access (to David Headley),” sources said.

New Delhi’s preference is extradition of the LeT operative as the crime was committed in India, they said.However, if it takes some time then India would like to have direct access to him through legal process so that it (the information provided by Headley) is admissible in courts in India, the sources said.

It was not certain whether Singh will raise the issue during his meeting with President Barack Obama at the Blair House here on Sunday.Singh is here to attend the two-day Nuclear Summit beginning on Monday.
