Reshma Patel shot dead in shootout in Mumbai
Dubai: Pakistani star Laila Khan alias Reshma Patel, was killed in a shoot out in Mumbai. Laila made her Bollywood debut in 2008 starring opposite Rajesh Khanna in ‘Wafa’. Later she went missing from the sets of ‘Jannath’ from 29th May 2011. On investigation police found that her name was connected with Delhi blasts.
Much to the surprise of all she married Muneer Khan, chief of Harkat Ul Jihad, a terror outfit based in Bangladesh. J and K police on enquiry found that Laila’s uncle Parvez Iqbal Tak was the main suspect in her killing. He reportedly admitted that she, her family and a friend were killed in February 2011 in Maharashtra.
Gareeb Das, DIG (Doda-Ramban range ) of J&K police said, “During the interrogation Tak has admitted that Laila, her mother, sister and a friend were killed in Maharashtra in February last year.” Explaining the modus operandi, he said, “Tak told us that gun shots were used in the killing. We have not found the bodies yet so we have to first get the bodies before reaching to any conclusion.” Das said it was not appropriate to disclose information as it could hamper the probe.
