New Delhi, July 25:In a startling disclosure, the Bombay High Court was told that Gautam Navlakha was in touch with Hizbul Mujahideen, a proscribed terrorist organisattion that is active in Jammu and Kashmir.
The documents that were recovered from the accused persons suggest that various naxal groups that Navlakha was associated with had been in touch with the Hizbul. He has been liaising with banned terrorist organisations including the Hizbul Mujahideen since 2011, Aruna Pai, counsel for the Pune Police informed the court. She also claimed that he was in touch with separatists like Syed Geelani and Shakil Bakshi.
