Chicago, Jun 11 (PTI) It will remain a mystery for ever as to why the 12-member jury of a Chicago court acquitted Tahawwur Husain Rana from his involvement in the Mumbai terrorist attack that killed more than 160 people, as charged by federal prosecutors in one of the three counts.
As the 12-member jury decided not speak to the media after the verdict was announced and opted to remain anonymous forever, the split verdict given by them ? which has resulted in a big disappointment to not only the victims of the Mumbai terrorist attacks, but also the governments of India and the US ? would now only be a subject of speculation by media and analysts.
At the request of the jury, it has been decided that names of the 12-members would forever remain anonymous and would never be made public.
