Pakistan born Canadian, Tahawwur Rana, convicted for aiding the banned LeT terror group in a plot to attack a Danish newspaper, has sought a fresh trial saying he should have been given a separate hearing for charges tied to the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

50-year-old Rana was acquitted of federal charges that he aided the terrorists who carried out the attacks in Mumbai after an eight-day trial in Chicago earlier this year but was convicted for the Danish plot.
He was convicted of providing material support to the banned Lashkar-e-Toiba, and of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorism in connection with a separate, foiled plot involving the Danish newspaper- Jyllands Posten.
