Nitish Kumar drew flak from the BJP for calling Ishrat Jahan Bihar ki beti during poll campaign.
David Headley’s confession that Ishrat Jahan was a Lashkar-e-Taiba operative has sparked a political storm with the BJP lashing out at its opposition and demanding an apology for their earlier remarks while Congress refusing to oblige.
The revelation also embarrassed Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar with the BJP taking a dig at him for using Ishrat’s killing as an issue during then Bihar polls by terming her a ‘Bihar ki beti’.
BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli noted that LeT had portrayed her as a “martyr” on its website but “government agencies at that time were put at war with each other and attempts were made at fixing individuals instead of finding the truth”.
Headley, during his deposition in Mumbai court in the 26/11 attack case, said that Ishrat Jahan –who was killed in an alleged fake encounter in 2004 in Gujarat–was actually a suicide bomber of Lashkar-e-Taiba terror outfit.
