Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley told the courts that Ishrat Jahan (who was killed in an encounter took that place in 2004 by the Gujarat police) was an LeT suicide bomber.

Meanwhile, Musarrat Jahan (Ishrat’s sister), maintained that her sister was innocent. “The investigation in India (all of them) have proven that the encounter was fake,” she told CNN IBN and added that all of this was a political conspiracy.

Vrinda Grover, Ishrat’s mother’s legal attorney said, “there is a political agenda” and that Ishrat has no terror links.

BJP’s Shahnawaz Hussain said that the party supports what many people have been saying in Gujarat for a long time.  The deposition of Headley could not happen on Wednesday due to a technical snag in the video conference in the US.  Manish Tewari of Congress said that these assertions should be investigated.  

Nalin Kohli, National Spokesperson of the BJP said that Headley had pointed to this “truth” in 2013 but it was not accepted.
