Headley had reportedly told the National Investigation Agency (NIA) that a terror plan, plotted by Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) commander Zaki-ur-Rahman Lakhvi, had failed after the death of Ishrat Jahan and three other men who accompanied her.

Reacting to the development, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh has demanded that the Union Home Ministry must clarify whether Headley had told NIA that Ishrat Jahan had terror links.

Digvijay on Friday morning posted a tweet saying, "Home Ministry must clarify whether Headley told the Team which went to US to interrogate him whether Ishrat Jehan had terror links, sources said.

Asserting that the unofficial selective leaks  regarding the case is creating confusion, the Congress leader said, "Unofficial selective leaks of I Jehan case are creating confusion in the public mind which is not in the interest of our Internal Security."
