The mysterious name, Rahul, mentioned extensively in LeT operative David Coleman Headley's e-mails to his associates in Pakistan has been identified. He is son of famed filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, says media reports.

Rahul Bhatt, 25, a fitness freak was a friend of Headley, who was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Chicago last month along with a Canadian citizen of Pak origin Tahawwur Rana, at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on charges of plotting terror attacks on India and Denmark.

According to TV reports, investigating agencies have already questioned Rahul and have given him a clean chit saying that he appears to be innocent.

Sources reveal that Bhatt has admitted that he knew Headley but he didn't know his actual background. He took him to be a foreign national in India on a job. That was exactly the guise Headley had been living under in India between 2006 and 2009."

It has also been revealed that it was Rahul who helped Headley rent a flat near Breach Candy hospital in Mumbai.
