26/11 attacks: Rana`s bail plea opposed by federal prosecutors
Chicago: The bail plea of Tahawwur Hussein
Rana, who faces possible life sentence for involvement in the
Mumbai attacks, has been opposed by federal prosecutors in a
Chicago court, which asked the Pakistani-Canadian LeT
operative to respond to this by January 20.
Federal prosecutors filed their opposition to 49-year-old
Rana`s bail plea before the court yesterday.
Pakistan-born Canadian national Rana, who was arrested by
the FBI in October last year, has been asked to respond to
this opposition by January 20.
On Thursday, Rana along with three others, including
David Coleman Headley -- a US national of Pakistani origin,
was indicted by a federal grand jury on 12-count charges of
being involved in the Mumbai attacks and planning a terror
strike against a Danish newspaper in Copenhagen.
In papers filed before the Chicago court, federal
prosecutors noted that Rana has been indicted on charges of
planning the Mumbai terrorist attack which killed 166 people,
including six Americans.
Opposing his bail plea, they said Rana was also facing a
possible 30-year sentence with regard to plotting attack on
the Danish newspaper.
