What happened to Laila Khan? The mystery deepens.

This case is getting more and more mysterious. Investigators say it could have been a property dispute  stemming from Laila’s mother’s divorce from Nadir Patel.

So sad. And extremely disturbing, if true.  Something very sinister emerges when you start reading about the mystery surrounding her. It looks like she, her family and a friend of hers were killed, and the family car then later used in a terrorist attack.

The Pakistan-born actress Laila Khan starred in the movie Wafaa  alongside Rajesh Khanna in 2008.

He said the conspiracy was hatched by him along with two others, including a Mumbai-based builder, who hired two shooters to kill the family. The police suspect property dispute to be the motive behind the murders.

But circumstances are such that they may have been murdered.”

“Initially it was said that Laila left for Dubai and now it has emerged that she and her family have been murdered. It will not be appropriate to say something till we interrogate Tak,” said joint commissioner of police (crime) Himanshu Roy.

Bollywood star Laila Khan has been linked to a terrorist attack in Delhi last year.

The Wafaa actress’s car has been implicated in a bomb blast at the Delhi High Court in September 2011, reports The Times of India.

Gareeb Dass, Deputy Inspector General with the Jammu and Kashmir police, stated: “The vehicle could be an important link to the Delhi High Court case, and was probably used in Delhi to carry out the blast.”

Khan was reported missing by her father in January 2011, after she had not been seen at her Mumbai residence for a number of weeks. The actress is reportedly living in Dubai after exiting India via the Pakistan land border.

The actress is best known for her work opposite Rajesh Khanna in his comeback film Wafaa, which underperformed at the box office following its 2008 theatrical release.

The last person to use the car, a Mitsubishi Outlander, was Khan’s family friend Parvez Ahmed, who allegedly has links with militant groups in Kashmir.

“Parvez, who was using the car in the past, is evading arrest after the seizure. We have intensified the search for him,” added Dass.

The blast in central Delhi killed 11 people and injured 76 others.



Times of India  reported that

 …”Laila had become close to suspected Lashkar militant Tak through a Bangladesh-based terrorist Munir Khan, whom she allegedly married. Laila’s role in Delhi high court blasts came into picture after reports suggested that a Mitsubishi Outlander which was in her mother’s name, Saleena Patel, was used for ferrying the explosives.”…
