Veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and his daughter Pooja had blasted the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for keeping silent on the media reports linking Rahul Bhatt with terrorists and treating an informant like a criminal but it didn't stop the NIA from passing restrictive order on the filmmaker's son.
The NIA has asked Rahul not to leave Mumbai without informing them of his travel. He has been under scanner for his alleged link with David Coleman Headley, an LeT operative, who was in Mumbai five days prior to the attacks in Mumbai on 26th November last year.
However, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is furious over questioning his son like a criminal for helping the NIA. He said that the agency can record his son's statement but not question him. He added that he is heartbroken at which his son has been treated.
Rahul, whose name has been reportedly mentioned in the emails sent by Headley to the LeT handlers, used to work as a fitness instructor at Moksha gym in south Mumbai. He came to know Headley through one Vilas, who also works with him.
Following the arrest of Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana by the FBI at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, for their alleged involvement in terror activities, Rahul has been under scanner too.
