Washington, Jul. 21: The Biden administration has urged a federal court in Los Angeles to extradite Pakistani-origin Canadian businessman Tahawwur Rana to India where he is sought for his involvement in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

Rana, 59, has been declared a fugitive by India, where he is facing multiple criminal charges for his involvement in the Mumbai terror attack in which 166 persons, including six Americans, were killed.

He was rearrested on June 10, 2020, in Los Angeles on an extradition request by India in a submission before the US District Court, Central District of California in Los Angeles, the US government argues that India's extradition request contains sufficient evidence of probable cause on each of the criminal charges for which India seeks Rana's extradition.

submission before the court last week.-Agencies
