Ishrat was working for us: Lashkar

Press Trust of India

Posted: Jul 14, 2004 at 1958 hrs IST

Giving credence to the police assertion, Pakistan-based Lashker-e-Taiba has said that Ishrat Jehan, who was killed along with three others in Ahmedabad, was the outfit's woman activist.

In a news report published in Lahore-based Ghazwa Times, mouthpiece of LeT, Lashker 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 published in the Jamat-ul-Dawa website, the new name of Markaz-ad-Dawa Wal Arshad (parent organisation of LeT), which was changed after the US banned it in 2002.

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.
