Rahul picked up an acquaintance with Headley, accused of plotting terror attacks in India, when the American citizen had visited Mumbai between 2006 and 2009

Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s son Rahul is a witness in the case relating to terror charge probe against American national David Headley, a top police official said.

“Let the investigation be done. At the moment, Rahul Bhatt is a witness. The investigation is going on”, Joint Commissioner of Police Rakesh Maria said.

Rahul picked up an acquaintance with Headley, accused of plotting terror attacks in the US and India, when the American citizen had visited Mumbai between 2006 and 2009.

Meanwhile, gymn instructor Vilas Warak, through whom Rahul had come in contact with Headley, said, “I have done a great service to the nation by going to Maria and telling him everything that I knew about Headley. He was a nice guy and now I find that he was not a genuine friend....I never went to meet Headley, he came to me“.

Warak, who has now lost his job at the gym, said that when he reported for work, the gym’s manager told me to go away and lie low till the matter is sorted out. “I have lost everything”.
