Tahawwur Rana Extradition: The case related to the extradition of Pakistani-born Canadian businessman Tahawwur Rana to India has been pending in the US federal court for nearly a year. Rana is wanted in the Mumbai Terror Attack case on 26 November 2008. In these terrorist attacks, 166 people, including six American citizens, were killed and more than 200 people were injured. India has declared him a fugitive.

Judge Jacqueline Chuljian of the California District Court in Los Angeles held the last hearing on the matter in June 2021 and the last documents in this regard were filed on July 15.

Why not extradition even after sufficient evidence?

Now more than a year has passed and the court is yet to decide on the US government’s request to extradite Rana to India. Since then the court has not made any comment in this regard. The US government, while requesting to extradite Rana to India, said that India has provided sufficient evidence for each of the criminal charges in Rana’s extradition request.

Wanted in Mumbai terror attacks

Rana is wanted for his alleged role in the Mumbai terror attack and India has requested his extradition. Rana is a childhood friend of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist David Coleman Headley. Headley, a 60-year-old US citizen of Pakistani origin, was involved in plotting the 2008 Mumbai attacks. He had become a witness in the case and is currently serving a 35-year prison sentence in the US for his role in the attack and has testified against Rana.

opposition to extradition

Tahawwur Rana’s lawyer has opposed the extradition. Federal prosecutors said 166 people, including six Americans, were killed in attacks by Lashkar-e-Taiba members. The conspiracy hatched by these members resulted in the death of many people and that was their intention or at least they were aware of the dangers posed by these acts. This is enough evidence to prove the charge of murder. Prosecutors said that under the law, other members of the organization would also be held responsible for the murder, even if they were not directly present at the scene.
