In a major victory for India, a US court has said that Pakistani-origin Canadian businessman Tahawwur Rana who is wanted for his role in the Mumbai 26/11 blast can be extradited to India.
Judge Jacqueline Chooljian of US District Court in Central District of Los Angeles in an order dated May 16 said that, based on the foregoing, the court concludes that Rana (62) can be extradited for the offences for which extradition has been requested and on which the United States is proceeding.
The probe into the attack is being carried out by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). The NIA had visited the US a couple of times seeking the extradition of Rana.
