The three most crucial charges on Rana are- helping the LeT attackers, providing them with arms and ammunitions and planning a terror strike in Denmark.

After a two-hour of intensive interrogation, the two questions raised by the jury were whether retired Pakistani Army Major Pasha was involved with the LeT and if the al-Qaeda terrorist Ilyas Kashmiri was associated with the LeT.
