New Delhi: In the latest development in the Delhi High Court blast probe, the e-mail supposedly sent by the Indian Mujahideen (IM) on Thursday claiming responsibility for the explosion has been traced to West Bengal.

Meanwhile, the investigating officials are trying to trace the IP address of the Indian Mujahideen e-mail.

Which group carried out the Wednesday’s Delhi HC blast is still a mystery. On Wednesday itself, Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (HuJI) claimed responsibility for the explosion. But on Thursday, Indian Mujahideen said it executed the blast. And on Friday, another e-mail from an unknown group claiming responsibility made it more complicated for the investigators.

In an e-mail to a few media organisations, the IM in fact warned of carrying out another attack on September 13 (Tuesday) at a crowded shopping complex. “Stop us if you can,” dared the IM.

Another terror e-mail surfaced today, warning of an impending attack. The e-mail from a Yahoo! Account has been sent to the authorities in which an unnamed terror group claimed the responsibility for the blast.

The e-mail was received by the Intelligence Bureau (IB), which further passed it on to NIA and the Home Ministry. It is still being deciphered.

According to reports, the e-mail has also warned of an impending attack in the national capital. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Home Affairs has asked Yahoo! for the details of the e-mail account.

Meanwhile, a day after picking up five persons for questioning, J&K police have prepared a sketch of the suspected e-mail sender from Kishtwar district and launched operations on Friday to track him down. This comes after HuJI claimed responsibility for the explosion on Wednesday itself.

The e-mail, attributed to the HuJI, was found to have been sent from Global Internet Cafe at Malik Market in Kishtwar.

As per the description provided by the detained persons including the cyber cafe owner, the sender is a 17-18 year old boy, and the police are hopeful of tracing the suspect soon.

Terror struck Delhi on Wednesday, when a powerful bomb went off outside the Delhi High Court at 10.17 am. At least 13 persons were killed, and 73 others injured.
