The Maharashtra government will discuss with the Centre the extradition process of Tahawwur Rana, recently rearrested in the US for his alleged
involvement in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said on Saturday.
Rana had been declared a fugitive by India. Pakistani-American terrorist David Coleman Headley had told investigators that he had acted as an agent of Rana during the 26/11 attacks, Deshmukh said.
"We will discuss Rana's extradition process with senior police officials in Maharashtra and at the Central- level," he said.
Rana, 59, was recently released from jail on compassionate ground after he told a US court that he had tested positive for COVID-19. However, he was rearrested in Los Angeles 10 days ago.
A special court here had issued arrest warrant against Rana on August 28, 2018.(This story has not been edited by News18 staff and is published from a syndicated news agency feed - PTI)
