The verdict on 26/11 accused Hussain Rana has been deferred as the jury of a Chicago court continues deliberations on his fate. There are three charges leveled against Rana- helping the 26/11 attackers, giving material support to the LeT and planning a terror strike inDenmark.
The prosecution says they have sufficient and reliable evidence against him for all the above stated three offences and if convicted, he can be convicted sentenced for life.
Earlier on Wednesday, after two hours of interrogation, the jury posted two questions to both the prosecution and the defence- first, whether retired Pakistan retired Army Major Pasha was involved with the LeT or the ISI and second, if al-Qaeda terrorist Ilyas Kashmiri was associated with the LeT.
After consultations, Judge Harry D told the jury that they have to rely on the material available in the public domain.
