Rana verdict: Not guilty for 26/11 Mumbai attacks

June 10, 2011 03:54 IST

Tahawwur Rana was on Thursday held not guilty on charges of involvement in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks by a United States federal court which convicted him for providing material support to Pakistan-based terror group LeT and for plotting an attack in Denmark.

The 12-member jury announced the verdict at the end of two days of deliberations against 50-year-old Rana, a Pakistani-Canadian and co-accused in the Mumbai attack with David Coleman Headley.

Court spokesman Randall Samborn said Rana has been convicted of providing material support to Denmark terror plot and also for giving such support to Lashkar-e-Tayiba. Rana, however, was not convicted for his alleged role in the Mumbai attack.

The verdict came nearly three weeks of trial of Rana at the Chicago court.
