Did Tahawwur Rana, an associate of American terror suspect David Coleman Headley, travel to Kochi with his wife?

Investigations into the visits of the two terror suspects have led sleuths to know about the presence of a woman who claims to be the wife of the latter and had visited India along with him, official sources said in New Delhi on Sunday.

Samraz Rana, a Canadian national born in Bahawalpur of Pakistan, had accompanied Rana to Kochi on November 16, 2008. Ahead of his Kochi visit, Rana had given an advertisement in a prominent English daily asking youths willing to immigrate to US and Canada to appear for interview at a five-star hotel located in Kochi, they said.

The duo had left Kochi next day. Rana and his school friend Headley were arrested last month by the FBI on charges of being part of a plan by Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) to carry out terror attacks in India and Denmark.
