Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir Police and the National Investigation Agency (NIA) are questioning seven people in connection with an email claiming responsibility for the Delhi High Court bombing, a police officer said Sunday.

"We have picked up seven people and have put them through sustained interrogation, but there are no conclusions at the moment," a senior police officer told a news agency on condition of anonymity.

An e-mail which claimed that terror group Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (HuJI) carried out the bombing was traced to an internet cafe in Kishtwar, a town 230 km northeast of Jammu.

Three people, including the cafe`s two owners, were held for interrogation Sep 8. Subsequently, four more people were detained, including two surrendered militants.

Kishtwar is a mountainous area in Jammu region and was a hotbed of militancy a couple of years ago. Groups like Lashkar-e-Toiba, Hizb-ul-Mujadeen and HuJI were active in the area.
