Key conspirator of the 2008 Mumbai attacks David Coleman Headley will be sentenced on Jan 17 next year, a court has ruled.
The sentencing of his accomplice Tahawwur Rana has been rescheduled from Dec 4 to Jan 15, reports said.
Rana was convicted of aiding Pakistan based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
The two accused will be sentenced by US District Judge Harry Leinenweber, reports said.
Headley, a Pakistani-American had pled guilty on 12 counts in a Chicago court in 2010.
Headley was a conspirator of the Nov 2008 attack on India's financial capital that killed 166 people, including six Americans.
Rana allegedly provided logistical support during Headley's recon missions.
Earlier last week, ending a four-year-long judicial process, Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, lone surviving terrorist of the 26/11 Mumbai attack in 2008, was hanged in India.
A total of 166 people including foreigners were killed in the attack on Mumbai in Nov 2008.
