India will seek from the US access to Tahawwur Rana, accomplice of 26/11 plotter David Coleman Headley. It will try to secure access to the seven accused in Pakistan's custody, the government said here on Thursday.
MEA spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said the demand for extradition of Headley and Rana will continue. "We have received good cooperation from the US in the 26/11 cases. We intend to work close with the US in taking these proesses forward. Our demand for the extradition of both Rana and Headley continues to stand," he said. "The US has been helpful thus far within the limits of their laws in enabling us access to Headley. Our officials have been able to spend seven days questioning him. We were, however, not able to question Rana earlier given his rights as an accused under the US law. Now that he is a sentenced prisoner, we will once again seek the US support for access to him and also for further access to Headley," Akbaruddin said.
He said that the government will continue to work with the United States to seek access to others who may be of interest using existing bilateral mechanisms.
