The family resides in Mumbra in Thane district of Maharashtra. The Gujarat police killed Ishrat and the others on June 15 claiming they are Lashkar-e-Tayiba (LeT) terrorists and were planning to assassinate state Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

Doubts have been raised over the Gujarat government's claim and the Maharashtra government on Thursday ordered a probe to ascertain whether the girl, who studied in Mumbai's Khalsa College, had any links to criminals or terrorists.
