Mumbai: Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt says his
son Rahul, who came into the spotlight for his acquaintance
with David Coleman Headley, would like to see the 26/11
accused brought to justice.

"Rahul is a brave citizen who volunteered to help the
investigating agencies on his own. He too, like the 26/11
victims, would like to see Headley brought to justice," the
noted Bollywood personality and social activist said.
"Just when we thought that the worst was behind us,
after the utterances of Headley in a Chicago court, where he
said Rahul and Vilas Varak (who, along with Rahul, trained the
LeT operative Headley in the Moksh gym) did not know about his
designs and what he was up to in Mumbai, a new allegation is
now being hurled at my son, based on his media interview,"
Bhatt said.

"Let me elaborate what Rahul`s stand is. Rahul
unhesitatingly called David Coleman Headley the jackal of the
21st century. He regrets having met a person like Headley who
was the architect of the worst tragedy that Mumbai experienced
in recent times.
"But it is also a fact that he refuses to believe that
Headley was not a CIA agent. Rahul has been saying this from
the word go to the NIA, to the IB and to the Mumbai police
that Headley was a brilliant mind who had an in-depth
knowledge of too many things," he said.
