Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhat has always been a staunch opposer of terrorism. He has often raised his voice against terrorism whenever there have been attacks. Now NIA has found that his son Rahul Bhat and nephew Emraan Hashmi were in touch with David Coleman Headley, who allegedly plotted terror attacks in India and Denmark.
Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi said to be in touch with Headley and the investigators are looking to probe that link. They have found phone records that link Emraan Hashmi to Headley, reports CNN-IBN. It is said that Rahul Bhatt introduced Emraan to Headley, after which they met up twice, including once on the sets of Hashmi's latest film Tum Mile.
Rahul Bhatt told investigators that Hashmi and Headley have been in touch. Meanwhile, it is said that Rahul Bhatt is not a suspect and that he is being treated as a witness in the case. Rahul has even told that he took Headley to meet two Bollywood actresses, but sources have refused to name these actresses.
However, the NIA team has been in Mumbai since Saturday and is gathering details pertaining to the activities of Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana. The NIA has recorded the statements of those who were in touch with Headley during his stay in the city. Rahul Bhatt and the other three are fully cooperating with the police and NIA.
