Ishrat Jahan was a fidayeen assigned to kill Modi: Headley
New Delhi: In what would come as a great relief for Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and Gujarat police, David Headley has said Ishrat Jahan, the Mumbai college girl who was gunned down last year was a fidayeen, or suicide bomber.
Bearing out the version of Gujarat Police, American-born Lashker-e-Toiba terrorist David Headley has claimed before NIA sleuths that Ishrat, who was killed in a police encounter in Ahmadabad, was a suicide bomber of the outfit.
Official sources said that Headley shared this information with the four-member team comprising officials from National Investigation Agency and Law Department during their visit to Chicago in the US.
The girl, whose death had sparked a major controversy, was alleged to be a member of Lashker's suicide squad who had been inducted by top LeT operative Muzamil.
