A team of officials from India is believed to have arrived in the U.S. for the proceedings that will take place in a federal court in Los Angeles.

U.S. District Court Judge in Los Angeles Jacqueline Chooljian in her order on April 5 had moved the in-person extradition hearing of 59-year-old Rana to India from April 22 to June 24.

The United State government, in multiple submissions before the court, has made a declaration in support of the “United States’ Surrebuttal in Support of its Request for Certification of Extradition.” Rana is sought in India in connection with his involvement in the November 26, 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack.
