LeT mouthpiece says Ishrat a member

July 14, 2004 20:30 IST

A Pakistani daily affiliated to Lashkar-e-Tayiba claimed that Ishrat Jehan was a member of the terror outfit.

Lahore-based Ghazwa Times said, "The veil of Ishrat Jahan, a woman activist of LeT, was removed by Indian police and her body was kept with other Mujahideens (terrorists) on the ground."

"Ishrat was with her husband sitting on the front seat of the car," said the newspaper report.

Two Indians and two Pakistanis, all alleged LeT suicide squad members, were gunned down by Gujarat police in the wee hours of June 15 on the outskirts of Ahmedabad.

Besides Ishrat from Mumbra in Mumbai, others killed were Javed Sheikh of Pune, Jishan Johar alias Abdul Ghani from Gujranwala (Pakistan) and Amjadali Akbarali Rana alias Salim of Haveli Diwan (Pakistan).

The killing of Ishrat sparked a major debate with some groups claiming her to be innocent. However, the findings of the Gujarat and Mumbai police had pointed to her involvement in militant and anti-national activities.
