Speaking to reporters, Bhatt said, "This incident has shaken me terribly. I have lost faith in everyone. I don't even trust my girlfriend now. I have started suspecting people in my family. I can't trust anymore."
Bhatt said that Headley incident has made him "xenophobic" and he has lost faith in all human relationships. Whatever has happened of late has also made him "wiser".
"I have become a xenophobic... I have stopped trusting people and I am extremely suspicious of foreigners. So now, my guard is up and I am in a constant state of awareness and alertness because of the bizarre incident," said Bhatt.
He further said, "The David Headley that I knew then was a different man and the David who has now emerged now is a different man...The absolute monster."
Bhatt was questioned by security agencies after it emerged that Headley had known him during his stay in Mumbai.
