NIA takes back pleas against Headley, Rana

delhi Updated: Jul 16, 2010 00:46 IST

The National Investigation Agency on Thursday withdrew from a Delhi court its petition seeking issuance of non-bailable warrants (NBW) 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 NIA filed a fresh application seeking issuance of NBWs against Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and Hafiz Saeed and four others for plotting terror attacks in India.

The NIA withdrew its plea against the duo saying they are already in judicial custody in the US, with which India has an extradition treaty.

Regarding Lakhvi and Saeed, the NIA sought issuance of NBW on the ground that it was required for getting Red Corner Notices issued against them.

District and Sessions Judge SP Garg asked the agency to submit the copy of the case diary to ascertain the specific allegations against the accused.
