Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, on Tuesday, said that the state government would seek legal counsel on Republic Bharat Chief Arnab Goswami- Dasgupta’s leaked Whats App conversations about Pulwama attack and Balakot airstrike.
He also said, would further initiate legal actions after speaking to senior police officers. He said the while addressing a press conference after Congress Spokesperson Sachin Sawant took the matter to him.
“This is a matter of national security; we must understand the seriousness of the situation," said Deshmukh.
"The Balakot airstrike happened on 26 February 2019, it’s a matter of serious concern that Goswami knew about it two days prior to the attack,” he stated.
“We also urge the Centre to look into the matter as confidential information was leaked and national security was compromised,” he added.
