NIA team to quiz Headley on his stay post-26/11

 A four-member team of National Investigation Agency, which along with a public prosecutor is expected to leave for the US on Monday, has prepared questions about his stay in the country especially during March 2009, his last visit to India.

The travel details of Headley are being sought mainly as investigators believe that this visit may have been to finalise the synchronised terror strikes on Jewish houses located in five cities, sources said.

This will be the first time that 49-year-old Headley will be facing direct questions from Indian investigators.

The statement of Headley would be recorded by the Special Law Officer of India after which the NIA, which has registered a case against Headley and Pakistani-Canadian national Tahawwur Rana for waging war against the country and Unlawful Activities Prevention (Act), may file a charge sheet against him.

Besides the Indian team, those expected to be present during the questioning would be Headley’s lawyer and an officer of the FBI.
