Headley access: Solicitor General leaves for US

Subramaniam’s five-day visit is primarily to understand the US legal system within which India could get access to Headley, a Pakistani-American national who has confessed his involvement in the Mumbai attacks, sources said.

He will discuss with officials of the US Justice Department modalities for access to Headley, a Lashkar-e-Toiba operative, in an appropriate legal format.

The sources pointed out that the legal system in the US was different from that of India and hence there was need to understand it properly and move ahead accordingly.
India wants to question Headley in a manner that his statement would be acceptable in a court of law here.
