Gujarat Police on Saturday said it was investigating into US-based LeT operative David Coleman Headley's visit to the state.

"We had some information about that and we are working on it. Headley had come for a couple of days with one of his accomplices to Ahmedabad....that information seems to be almost confirmed," Director General of Police S S Khadwavala said.

He said that they are yet to receive any official information in this regard from the Central security agencies.

"Our anti-terrorist squad and other police officials are investigating into the visit," he further said.

On Headley having any local support here, the DGP said, "Until and unless there is local support, no terrorist can operate."

In the backdrop of Headley's several visits to India between 2006 and 2009, the Centre has issued alerts to five states, including Gujarat, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh, as a precautionary measure.

During investigations, it was found that Headley had visited Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Agra and Delhi and done a recce of vital installations in other cities.

Headley (49) was arrested last month by FBI for allegedly hatching a conspiracy with LeT to carry out strikes inside and outside the US.
