Tahawwur Rana

Pakistani-origin Tahawwur Rana, a Canadian businessman, has filed a writ of habeas corpus appealing a recent US court judgement that cleared the way for his extradition to India, where he faces trial for his role in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.
Last month, the US District Court for the Central District of California granted Rana’s extradition to India.

Rana, 62, opposed the Government of India’s extradition by filing a Writ of Habeas Corpus through his counsel. Rana’s extradition would violate the US-India extradition pact in two ways, according to his lawyers.
