NEW DELHI: Questions were being asked on Tuesday about the sudden departure of Ken Haywood, an executive of an MNC whose computer Internet connection was used to send terror e-mail minutes before Ahmedabad blasts, but the Government chose to remain mum.
Haywood left on the intervening night of August 17-18 from Indira Gandhi International Airport here, despite a lookout notice issued by the Mumbai police pending against the 48-year-old US citizen. He was accompanied by his wife and two daughters to his home via Brussels.
The sudden departure of Haywood has given rise to considerable speculation about him including whether he had links with a western intelligence agency.
There was speculation that his links with intelligence agencies had come to fore after which he felt threatened and left the country. However, no one was forthcoming to confirm.
