A magistrate's court in the city on Monday signed an order issuing a letter rogatory (LR) to a Chicago court to allow the Mumbai Police Crime Branch to interrogate David Coleman Headley and Tahawwur Rana for their alleged role in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.
If the Chicago court that tried Headley and Rana agrees to the LR, a team from the Crime Branch including Senior Police Inspector Ramesh Mahale — the investigating officer in the case — will travel to the US to gather evidence. "Around two months ago, we had issued a request to the 37th Metropolitan Magistrates Court for an LR to interrogate Headley and Rana for their role in the 26/11 attack. The order has just been signed by the magistrate," said Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Himanshu Roy.
