A Chicago court has adjourned the hearing on the bail application of Tahawwur Hussain Rana, one of the two LeT operatives nabbed by FBI in October on charges of plotting a major terror attack against India, till December 15.

US Magistrate Judge Nan Nolan heard the case of 48-year-old Rana, a Pakistan-born US-based Canadian citizen, and said she wanted to take time to review the evidences that the prosecution will give her, including the five-hour long video of Rana's statement to the FBI agents after his arrest.

During the one-and-a-half-hour long hearing, Rana's lawyer Patrick Blegen produced three witnesses, including Rana's brother-in-law, who spoke about his "honest and trustworthy character".

The court adjourned the matter till December 15.

Earlier, the hearing in the case of Rana's accomplice David Coleman Headley (49), which was scheduled for December 4, had been indefinitely deferred.

Headley's hearing was scheduled before US Magistrate, Judge Arlander Keys.

Rana along with his school time friend Headley is also under investigation for possible links to the 26/11 terror strikes in Mumbai last year that killed 166 people.
