The Goa police have said that there is no information or intelligence input with it about the Pakistani-born American national and suspected Lashkar operative David Coleman Headley visiting the coastal state.
“We don’t know. We had no intelligence input on that (Headley’s Goa visit),” Goa police spokesman Atmaram Deshpande told reporters yesterday.
It should be noted that Despande’s remarks are in sharp contrast to the inputs by central agencies which had confirmed Headley’s Goa trip to recce certain installations in the state’s coastal belt.
The inputs suggested that Headley stayed at Anjuna and Arambol – hot spots from Israeli tourists – in Goa for two weeks
Media reports had also pointed out presence of Headley’s associate in Goa, who is of American origin.
During the recent assembly session, Goa Home Minister Ravi Naik had admitted that the state was on terror radar.
