The National Investigation Agency is on the lookout for a Mumbai-based woman, who used to accompany US citizen and suspected Lashkar-e-Tayyeba operative David Headley to Rahul Bhatt’s gym.

Last week, the NIA registered a case against Headley (49) and his aide Tahawwar Rana (48) for attempting to wage war against India.

Sources said the woman hails from Mumbai and used to be with Headley during his visits to Bhatt’s gym at Breach Candy.
“She was also with Headley when he visited other spots in the city seven months before 26/11,” an official said. “Headley used to introduce her as his wife.”

NIA officers have information that she used to work with a five-star hotel in the city.

Sources said Bhatt, his fitness trainer friend Vilas Pandurang Varak, and an estate agent who Headley approached for leasing a flat had spoken about her.

In Delhi, investigators have identified two cyber cafes in Paharganj that Headley frequen-ted during his March visit.
