A team of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, headed by its chief Robert Mueller, will visit New Delhi [ Images ] on November 18 to investigate the Indian links of David Headley [ Images ] -- the Lashkar-e-Tayiba [ Images ] operative arrested in Chicago in early October.
During its two-day visit, the team will probe the US citizen's links with the LeT and also try to find out information about the terror network he allegedly set up in India [ Images ], said sources.
Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana were arrested by the FBI for planning to carry out terror attacks in India. It was later revealed that the duo had planned a terror attack at the Indian Defence College in New Delhi.
On Wednesday, a Chicago court gave the FBI a 60-day deadline to complete its probe and file an indictment.
The FBI's investigations have revealed that Headley has visited India at least five times, using a fake passport, and he was involved with a LeT sleeper cell in Mumbai [ Images ].
On Wednesday night, the Centre issued a terror alert for five cities -- Delhi, Mumbai, Lucknow [ Images ], Agra [ Images ] and Ahmedabad [ Images ] -- barely two weeks before the anniversary of the 26/11 attacks.
Incidentally, these are the same cities that Headley visited during his trips to India.
A team from the Intelligence Bureau, which had traveled to Washington to interrogate Headley, was barred from doing so by the United States authorities.
