In a major victory for India in the fight to bring the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks to justice, the Central District of California Court Magistrate Jacqueline Choljian issued the 48-page order on Wednesday (May 17). It said that 62-year-old Rana should be extradited ‍under the extradition treaty between India and the US.

It was also said in this order that the court has reviewed all the documents presented in support and opposition to this request and considered all the arguments. Based on such review and consideration, the court has come to the conclusion that Rana should be extradited to India. The court authorizes the US Secretary of State to proceed with the extradition.

Rana’s involvement in the attacks and his association with his friend and Lashkar terrorist David Coleman Headley, according to documents relating to the certification of extradition status and commitment order filed in a US court, meeting Rana in Dubai on December 25, 2008 A co-conspirator sent an email to Headley.

According to this document, Rana had told Headley in a conversation on September 7, 2009, that the nine Lashkar terrorists killed in the Mumbai attacks should be given the ‘Nishan-e-Haider’ honour. It is the highest military honor of Pakistan.

Rana also asked Headley to tell one of the co-conspirators responsible for planning the Mumbai attacks that he should get a medal for the top class. The documents also suggest that Rana was pleased to learn that Headley had complimented him on his earlier statements, in which he compared the co-conspirator to a famous general.

In a conversation on September 7, 2009, Headley and Rana discussed targeting the NDC. Rana told Headley that he already knew that the NDC was a target. He talked about how such an attack would kill more high-ranking Indian military officers than in the previous war between India and Pakistan. Rana also created an email account for Headley so that Headley could communicate securely with Rana.
