NIA withdraws plea for NBWs against Headley, Rana

By The Assam Tribune

New Delhi, July 15 (PTI): The NIA today withdrew from a Delhi Court its petition seeking issuance of non bailable warrants against terror suspects David Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana on the charge of plotting attacks in India, saying the US was providing access to them.

The National Investigating Agency (NIA) filed a fresh application seeking issuance of NBWs against Pakistan-based Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and Hafiz Saeed and four others including two Pakistani Army officers for plotting terror attacks in India.

The NIA withdrew its plea against the Headley and Rana saying they are already in judicial custody in the US with which India has an extradition treaty and the agency was being provided access to them.

Regarding Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and Hafiz Saeed and other Pakistani accused, NIA sought issuance of NBW on the ground that it was required for getting Red Corner Notices issued against them.
