American terror suspect David Headley visited the ‘Osho Ashram’ here twice during 2008-2009, a top police official said on Tuesday.

“Headley stayed in the city for a day in June 2008 and March 2009 and visited the Ashram, frequented by foreigners,” Ravindra Sengaonkar, DCP, Crime, told PTI.

According to Ashram officials, he visited the establishment at Koregaon Park for meditation, he said.

Headley, accused of masterminding terror attacks in India at the behest of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), is believed to have visited Pune on a business visa and left for Mumbai later, police sources said.

A team of National Investigation Agency (NIA) sleuths which recently visited the city in connection with the probe has provided details of Headley’s visit here, they added.

A spokesperson of Osho Ashram Amirti Sadhna said the Ashram was open to all and visited by thousands of people for meditation.

“It is possible that Headley may have come here. We are fully cooperating with police in the investigations,” she said.
