MUMBAI:


As a US court acquitted Pakistani-born Canadian businessman Tahawwur Hussain Rana of charges of plotting the deadly Mumbai attacks, India has said it will press on with attempts to try Rana. India’s internal security secretary UK Bansal said the government in New Delhi was “disappointed” that Rana was acquitted at a court in Chicago on Thursday.


But he added: “I do not see it as a setback as our case is still under investigation.”

The Indian government would review the verdict, Bansal told reporters in Indian capital New Delhi, adding that federal investigators were still preparing a case against both Rana and Pakistani-American David Coleman Headley, who was the star witness in the Chicago trial, with a view of trying them in India. “When the probe is over, we will produce the evidence in court,” he said.

delh_se | 10 years ago | Reply Wow so much of pride because one of their terrorist got acquitted in "mumbai" case and not the remaining cases. This speaks out loud enough that Pakistani mentality is they should not be caught in act towards India, no matter worldwide they are branded as terrorist nation. As long as they can "get away" with their crimes in India they feel proud enough. SERIOUSLY , GOD, this is all Paksitanis care about ? All they can ever think is their shame vis a vis INDIA. I have no more complains with this pathetic nation whose very existence and brand recognition is solely on its comparison with India.
