Aizawl: Jammu and Kashmir police officials have briefed cyber cafe operators in the state and instructed them to keep a strict record of people who access their computer network.

“We have asked them to maintain a log in the local cyber cafes in order to keep a record of visitors. Their photographs, details, copy of their identity cards have to be submitted while access to their systems,” said Anand Jain, senior superintendent of police.

The move by the state police comes after the recent militant attacks in the country.

A powerful bomb, weighing two kg and hidden in a briefcase outside the main entrance of the High Court in New Delhi had killed 12 people on September 07.

As per media reports, so far the sleuths probing the case have detained five suspects for questioning and one of them is the owner of an Internet cafe and his close associates, from where the e-mail claiming responsibility for a bombing was transmitted.

The owner, his brother and an employee of the Global Cyber Cafe at Kishtwar in the state were taken in for questioning.

The authorities are probing the authenticity of an email claiming to be from the militant group Harkat-ul-Jihad Islami (HuJI) and sent from the Internet cafe.
