Mumbai: A 27-year-old man has been
detained by Maharashtra ATS for allegedly sending terror mails
to CBI`s Mumbai office warning of strikes on August 13 in 10
cities, including Delhi, an ATS official said on Tuesday.
Tushar Sawant, a resident of suburban Vidyavihar, was

police today for further investigations.

attacks, on how the strikes in 10 cities, including Mumbai
and Delhi, would pan out on August 13 in his mail.
The Mumbai office of CBI on May 23 received the terror
mail and the Cyber Cell of ATS took over the investigation,
the official said.
