New Delhi: Security agencies are investigating four e-mails in connection with the Delhi High Court blast and the question arises here as to whether the e-mails are merely a prank or a modus operandi used by terror groups to confuse investigators.
Three days after the September 7 blast, investigating agencies are still groping in the dark for conclusive leads. Gujarat was added on the list of states on high alert after a third e-mail warned that Ahmedabad would be the next target.
Meanwhile, in Jammu and Kashmir, police arrested a college student for sending the first email claiming responsibility for the blast, purportedly from the Harkat-ul-Jihad Islami, while a second e-mail, supposedly sent by the Indian Mujahideen, has been traced to West Bengal, and the proxy server for a third e-mail to Moscow.
The first e-mail was received on the day of the blast, i.e., Wednesday, September 7, allegedly sent by the Harkat-ul-Jihadi to media houses, claiming responsibility for the blast.
On September 8, the second e-mail surfaced, allegedly sent by Chhotu Minani Ayushman on behalf of the Indian Mujahideen claiming responsibility for the blast and threatening more in public places.
Then on Friday, the Delhi Police received another e-mail from ‘I’ll kill Indians @ yahoo.com‘, sent as a numeric code. The mail threatened to attack Ahmedabad.
And then late on Friday night, another e-mail from Chhotu Minani claimed that Ahmedabad will be attacked in a way that police will not be able to find any evidence.
The question now is how seriously should these e-mails be taken.
