Ishrat's family dismisses claims

The Mumbra-based family of Ishrat Jahan on Thursday dismissed the statement of Pakistani-American David Headley who claimed that she was an LeT terrorist.

“This is being done to save someone,” Ishrat’s mother Shamima Kauser said. “My daughter was innocent...she was killed (in a fake encounter),” she said. When asked who would do this, she said: “I do not know....all we know is that she was innocent.”

Ishrat’s sister Nushrat said Headley’s statement should not be believed. “My sister was innocent,” she said.

Ishrat’s uncle Rauf Lala said Headley’s statement was not shocking. “He is in the 26/11 case...he is giving evidence on 26/11 case...this is in a court of Mumbai, our case is in the Gujarat High Court,” he said. “After 15 questions, he did not answer. So (Ujwal) Nikam saab came out with three names and Headley selected one” he said.  “This is not something new, five years ago also such a statement has come from Headley, it does not matter what he states....Ishrat Jahan is innocent and this is proved,” added Lala.
