New Delhi: Amid a raging controversy over the killing of Mumbai girl Ishrat Jahan by Gujarat Police in an alleged fake encounter, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Wednesday said that his ministry was trying to find out if she was a terrorist.

"I am trying to get the information," Shinde told reporters when asked whether or not the 19-year-old girl killed was a terrorist.

The Home Minister, however, accepted that divergence of opinion exists between Intelligence Bureau (IB), which coordinated with Gujarat Police, and the CBI.

"I know there has been difference of opinion but we will get all the information," Shinde said.

Ishrat and her friend Javed Shaikh, alias Pranesh Pillai and two Pakistani nationals Amjadali Akbarali Rana and Zeeshan Johar, were killed near Ahmedabad by a team of Gujarat Crime Branch officials on June 15, 2004.
