Putting opposition to the bail application moved by Rana before a Chicago court yesterday, attorneys from the US Department of Justice described Rana as a ‘danger’ to the country, who, if released, will leave USA.
Rana could face a maximum punishment of 30 years imprisonment if proved guilty.
Pakistani-born Canadian citizen and a resident of Chicago, Rana was arrested by the FBI on terror charges along with his school friend Headley, a US citizen, who was also arrested on the charges of plotting attacks in Denmark and India.
Headley’s bail plea is scheduled for December.
