U.S. court rejects Rana’s bail plea

Chicago: Pakistan-born Canadian Tahawwur Rana, accused of plotting terror attacks in India and Denmark, was denied bail on Wednesday by a U.S. court which said if released he might flee the country to avoid a possible 30-year jail term.

U.S. magistrate judge Nan Nolan at the Federal Court here said, that with Rana’s expertise in the immigration business, there was a risk that he could leave the U.S. as his possible incarceration “could give him a motive to flee.”

The judge rejected his family’s offer of $1 million in bond to release him, saying this was not “sufficient.” In fresh affidavits, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, 48-year-old Rana, co-conspirator of Lashkar-e-Taiba operative David Coleman Headley, “knew in advance” about the 26/11 Mumbai attacks after which he “complimented” the Pakistan-based terror outfit. — PTI
