NEW DELHI, JULY 14. The Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba has said that Ishrat Jehan, who was killed along with three others by the police in Ahmedabad, was the outfit's woman activist.

In a news report published in the Lahore-based Ghazwa Times, the Lashkar said that ``the veil of Ishrat Jehan, a woman activist of the LeT, was removed by the Indian police and her body was kept with other Mujahideen (terrorists) on the ground.''

``Ishrat was with her husband sitting on the front seat of the car,'' said the report published in the Jamat-ul-Dawa website, the new name of Markaz-ad-Dawa Wal Arshad (parent organisation of the LeT).

The name was changed after the U.S. banned it in 2002. — PTI
