Mahesh Bhatt's son questioned on Headley link
Mumbai police have questioned Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt's son Rahul for his alleged friendship with David Coleman Headley, the Pakistan-born US national who is in FBI custody as a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) suspect.

Rahul Bhatt, a fitness instructor, was let off after questioning as he was unaware of Headley's terror links, said sources in the Mumbai Police.

According to sources, during questioning Rahul admitted to having known Headley and also helping him rent a flat near Breach Candy Hospital.

However, the filmmaker's son was unaware of Headley's actual background and took him to be a foreign national in India on a job.

There were several references to "Rahul" in Headley's e-mail exchanges with his Pakistani handlers that sent the security establishment into a tizzy.

Information provided by the FBI has revealed that Headley operated a visa agency in Mumbai for almost two years until July 2008 and had travelled to India on business visas nine times between 2006 and 2009.

When contacted, Mahesh Bhatt neither confirmed nor denied that his son had been questioned by police in connection with the Headley case.

"This is an issue of national security and not something trivial related to Bollywood. Ask the agencies that deal with national security. I will not say anything more," Bhatt told a television channel.

Investigators initially feared that the 'Rahul' reference was to Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi but Home Minister P Chidambaram promptly denied this. There was even speculation that it could be a code name for Shah Rukh Khan, who has played characters named Rahul in several films.

Headley and his alleged accomplice Tahawwur Hussain Rana, a Canadian citizen of Pakistani origin, are being held on charges of plotting attacks in India at the behest of Lashkar.

Intelligence shared by the FBI following the interrogation of Headley revealed that two of India's most prestigious boarding schools -- Doon in Dehradun and Woodstock in Mussoorie -- and the National Defence College in New Delhi were supposed Lashkar targets.

India will ask the US to extradite Headley after the FBI files its report in January.

No clean chit to Mahesh Bhatt's son Rahul yet
No clean chit has been given to film producer Mahesh Bhatt's son Rahul, whose name has cropped up in investigations relating to terror suspect David Headley, arrested by FBI for possible links with LeT.

"No one has been given clean chit," a top government source said when asked about reports from Mumbai that Rahul Bhatt has been cleared by the investigators of any wrong doing following reports that he had met Headley on some occasions.

Earlier reports from Mumbai said Rahul's uncle and Bollywood producer Mukesh Bhatt said the intelligence agencies have given Rahul a "clean chit" because there is nothing beyond it.

"What I gather is whatever they have spoken, the intelligence people have given him a clean chit absolutely because there is nothing beyond it," Mukesh said.
