Hyderabad: Claiming responsibility for
Friday’s killing of a constable here, a little known
city-based group having alleged links with LeT and SIMI has
warned of more "revenge attacks" if perpetrators of the Mecca
Masjid firing were not brought to book.

Police found a CD near the place where the constable
died after the firing by unidentified motorcycle-borne
assailants in the Old City area here.

The CD contained neither any audio nor video, but had
a letter in Urdu attributed to Tehrik-e-Galiba Islam warning
of more attacks if the government fails to order arrest of
those responsible for police firing after May 18 Mecca Masjid
blast in Hyderabad three years ago, police said.

The group said several innocent Muslims were killed in
the police firing immediately after the blast, adding it would
take revenge if government failed to arrest those involved in
the firing.
