On perusing them, the court said, “There is nothing against him (Mr. Navlakha) in any of the letters. We are of the prima facie opinion that there is nothing against him based on the documents submitted to us.”Additional Public Prosecutor Aruna Kamat Pai had submitted additional documents seized from Mr. Navlakha’s laptop in a sealed envelope to the court and said they cannot be shared with Mr. Navlakha as the investigation against him in the case is still on.The Bench had remarked, “There is nothing secretive in these documents.
