India will get access to 26/11 conspirator David Headley with the highest authorities in the United States having given an assurance in this regard, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Monday.

“I have been assured by the highest (authorities) in the US Administration that we will get access to David Headley,” Dr. Singh told a press conference here.

Headley has told his American interrogators that he had several times conducted recce for the Mumbai terror attacks.

A Pakistani-American, who was arrested in October last year, Headley had entered into a plea bargain with the US government wherein he has offered to be available to foreign investigators through deposition, video conferencing or letters rogatory.

A two-member team led by Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium had visited the US last month to discuss modalities of gaining access to Headley.
