New Delhi: India's wanted Pakistani-origin Canadian Korobari Tahawwur Rana, one of the main accused in the Mumbai terror attacks, will not be extradited to India for the time being. The biggest reason for this is that a US court has adjourned the hearing on the extradition of Rana, wanted in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, to India until June 24. However, Rana's extradition case was scheduled for hearing on April 22.
In his order on Monday, Justice Jacqueline Chuljian, a Judge of the US District Court in Los Angeles, adjourned the hearing of the 59-year-old Pakistani-born Tahwwur Rana's extradition case to India until June 24, 2021. The court passed the order after discussions between Rana and lawyers appearing for the US government in court over the issue.
According to media reports, lawyers from both sides agreed to postpone the hearing in Rana's extradition case to India till 1.30 pm local time on June 24. Meanwhile, it is also reported that Rana's lawyer involved in the Mumbai terror attack has filed a separate petition in the court opposing his extradition to India.
