Mumbai police submit chargesheet against businessman Tahawwur Rana

Mumbai: The Mumbai police have submitted a chargesheet before a special court here against Pakistani-origin Canadian businessman Tahawwur Rana for his involvement in the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

Rana, currently under detention in the United States, faces multiple charges for his role in the Mumbai attacks and is known to be associated with Pakistani-American terrorist David Coleman Headley, one of the main conspirators of the 26/11 strikes.

The over 400-page chargesheet, the fourth in the case so far, was submitted by the Mumbai police’s crime branch before the court’s registry on Monday.

The document is likely to come up before the special court on Tuesday after completion of the verification process, a government lawyer said.

In a major victory for country’s authorities, a US court approved 62-year-old Rana’s extradition to India in May to face trial.

A total of 166 people, including six Americans, were killed in the 2008 terror attacks in which 10 Pakistani terrorists laid a more than 60-hour siege, striking at iconic and vital locations in the financial capital.
