During his visit to Pune this year, American terror suspect David Headley had stayed at a hotel near Osho Ashram on March 16, police said on Wednesday.

The hotel 'Surya Villa' is located near the commune in Koregaon park area and frequented by foreigners coming to the Ashram for 'meditation'.

Police questioned the manager of the hotel who has furnished details of Headley's stay in Room No 202 along with a copy of the passport given by him while booking the accommodation. Headley had visited the Osho Ashram for 'meditation' during his visits to the city.

Headley who paid two visits to Pune in 2008-2009 had not registered himself with Foreigners Registration Office (FRO) in Pune on his arrival as required under the law.
