Weeks after India made a formal request for the extradition of LeT operative David Headley, accused in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, and his accomplice Tahawwur Hussain Rana, External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid has written to his US counterpart Hillary Clinton in this regard.
Sources said the minister wrote to Clinton pressing for the extradition of the duo before their sentencing takes place in the US courts in January on various terror related charges. India has been hopeful that its request for extradition, which was sent in the first week of November, would elicit a favourable reply from Washington.
However, there has not been any commitment from the US on the matter, with visiting US under secretary for political affairs Wendy Sherman merely saying last month that the request for extradition was under consideration and that a decision on the matter would be taken shortly.
Till now, Indian investigators have had limited access to Headley, who is accused of helping the LeT scout targets in Mumbai and plan the 2008 attacks. However, the US has not yet permitted access to Rana.
