US Court Dismisses Bail Plea Of 26/11 Accused Tahawwur Rana

Washington: A US court has rejected the bail plea of Pakistani-origin Canadian businessman Tahawwur Rana, who was a key accused in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack and declared a fugitive by India, asserting that he has not negated the “risk of flight”.

The 59-year-old, who has been a childhood friend of David Coleman Headley, was rearrested on June 10 in Los Angeles on an extradition request by India for his involvement in the Mumbai terror attack in which 166 people, including six Americans, were killed.

Pakistani-American LeT terrorist Headley was involved in plotting the 2008 Mumbai terror attack. He was made an approver in the case, and is currently serving a 35-year prison term in the US for his role in the attack.

Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Chooljian, the US District Court of Los Angeles, in his order on December 10 said that Rana “presented a robust bail package” and offered conditions that significantly mitigate the risk of flight.

But the “Court cannot find that he has negated the risk of flight” and as such granted the request of the US government to the continued detention of Rana.
