has been linked to a terrorist attack in Delhi last year.
actress's car has been implicated in a bomb blast at the Delhi High Court in September 2011, reports The Times of India
Gareeb Dass, Deputy Inspector General with the Jammu and Kashmir police, stated: "The vehicle could be an important link to the Delhi High Court case, and was probably used in Delhi to carry out the blast."
Khan was reported missing by her father in January 2011, after she had not been seen at her Mumbai residence for a number of weeks. The actress is reportedly living in Dubai after exiting India via the Pakistan land border.
The actress is best known for her work opposite Rajesh Khanna in his comeback film Wafaa
, which underperformed at the box office following its 2008 theatrical release.
The last person to use the car, a Mitsubishi Outlander, was Khan's family friend Parvez Ahmed, who allegedly has links with militant groups in Kashmir.
"Parvez, who was using the car in the past, is evading arrest after the seizure. We have intensified the search for him," added Dass.
The blast in central Delhi killed 11 people and injured 76 others.
