Hussain Rana`s aunt on Friday claimed that his nephew was innocent

cartoon of Prophet Mohammad in a Danish newspaper.

he had protested before the media against the Danish
cartoonist. This is why the Americans are deliberately using
this to malign him," Rana`s aunt Suraiya Bano told a TV channel.
Rana, a Pakistani Canadian, was arrested along with
Pakistani origin US national David Headley by FBI for planning
major terror attacks in India and in Denmark at the behest of
Security agencies are probing the alleged role of Rana
and Headley in last year`s Mumbai terror attacks.
