Washington, Nov 26: Indian Consul General in Chicago has said that no rules were violated in issuing visa to LeT operative Tahawwur Rana as he had submitted all proper papers.

Ashok Atri, who met External Afairs Minister and Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao, explained that no wrong-doing had occurred on part of the Consulate as Rana appeared to be a bonafide normal traveller to India for business.

The Consul General said that no exception had been made to give visa to Rana and that his office had routinely put the "discretionary" stamp on it.

Rana, a Canadian national of Pakistani origin, was arrested along with US national David Coleman Headley by FBI for planning major terror attacks in India on behest of Lashkar-e-Toiba.
