India requests US for extradition of 26/11 Mumbai attacks accused David Headley

National Investigative Agency (NIA) has made a fresh request to the United States (US) for the extradition of David Coleman Headley and Tahawwur Rana for their roles in the 26/11 (November 26, 2008) Mumbai attacks, Times Now reports on April 21. The NIA raised the issue with FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) Deputy Chief Andrew McCabe. The request was made earlier this month (April) when McCabe visited India and met senior officials from the NIA.

The NIA has been tasked with the investigations related to the conspiracy attack of 2008, and it voiced out concerns over the unanswered extradition requests for both the accused in the case. The NIA told McCabe that its multiple requests for the custody of Rana went unanswered. Revitalizing its demand, the NIA reported to McCabe that a US court had found Rana guilty of providing material support to the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), which was behind the attack in 2008. As of now, Rana has not been tried for his offences registered in India for forgery and criminal breach of trust.
