Kolkata: The Special Task Force of Kolkata Police on Wednesday arrested a 14-year-old student for allegedly sending a 'mischievous' e-mail to media houses claiming responsibility for the Delhi High Court blasts.

The student, Sunny Shukla of Pakur in Jharkhand, sent two e-mails to media houses claiming responsibility for the Delhi High Court blasts posing as a member of the Indian Mujahideen, Additional Commissioner of Police (STF), Rajiv Kumar told reporters.

"After interrogating him we are sure that the e-mails were sent mischievously and he has no connection with terror groups and not responsible for the Delhi High Court blasts," Kumar said.

Shukla sent the second and the fourth mail of the four mails received by the media houses from e-mail ID- chotoominani5@gmail.com through a Blackberry mobile using a SIM card of the Kolkata circle, claiming that the IM and not Huji was responsible for the blasts, Kumar said.

"He provided us the password and the e-mails were traced in his outbox," Kumar said.

"We have charged him under IT section 66A, 66B and 257 A of IPC and he has been produced in a juvenile court," Kumar said.

In reply to a question, he said that an NIA officer would interrogate Shukla.

The other two e-mails were traced to Moscow with Huji claiming responsibility for the mayhem.
