Another chat dated Feb 23, 2019, also reveals that Goswami had prior information about the Balakot airstrike, which was carried out by Indian warplanes on February 26, 2019.

In the message, Goswami informed Dasgupta how 'something big' is soon going to happen.

When Dasgupta inquires if it is 'Dawood', the journalist replied, "No sir Pakistan. Something major will be done this time."

Dasgupta replies how it is 'good for big man in this season' and 'he will sweep polls then'.

Goswami telling the former head of the rating agency about the pre-planned airstrike said, "Bigger than a normal strike. And also on the same time something major on Kashmir. On Pakistan the government is confident of striking in a way that people will be elated. Exact words used."

In the remaining chat chunks, Goswami and Dasgubputa discuused TRPs, politicians, actors and other matters.
