The bail hearing of Tahawwur Hussain Rana, a Pakistani-origin man in custody in the US on charges of plotting terrorist attacks in India, scheduled at a court in Chicago on Wednesday has been postponed till December 2.  

Rana's detention hearing before Magistrate Judge Nan R Nolan has been moved to December 2 at the joint request of the parties, a court official said.

Rana's hearing was initially scheduled for November 10 and had been postponed to November 19.  

A Pakistan-born Canadian citizen, Rana, along with David Coleman Headley, was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last month on charges of plotting terrorist attacks in India and Denmark. 

Headley and Rana are residents of the city, with Rana running an immigration consultancy agency in Devon here.

Federal prosecutors have time till January 14 to file an indictment case against Rana.

A Canadian national, Rana had made several trips to India in the past several years along with his school-time friend Headley, who has also been arrested on same charges.

Earlier, heeding to the request of the US Attorney Patrick J Fitzgerald who had moved a petition in this regard on Friday; Chief Justice James F Holderman of the US District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, on November 17 extended the time to file the indictment against Rana till January 14.
