New Delhi: Police were probing whether the
e-mail of Indian Mujaheedin claiming responsibility for the
Jama Masjid firing was sent through a proxy server located in
a foreign country to hoodwink security agencies here.

"We are looking into this angle. We are investigating
it," a senior police official said late on Tuesday.

Police had earlier tracked the e-mail sent to several
media organisations after the incident on Sunday to a Mumbai
suburban town of Borivali. It was sent using a Tata mobile
phone procured using fake documents.

The Anti-Terror Squad of Maharashtra Police was handed
over two addresses in Borivali and nearby Malad used for
procuring two Tata SIM cards. The names of two women were used
to procure the cards, sources in Maharashtra Police said.

Though police reached the addresses, the sources said,
they could not find the women. "The names used to procure the
SIM cards were fictitious," a source said.

Soon after the firing near Jama Masjid on Sunday, in
which two Taiwanese nationals were injured, an e-mail was sent
to various media houses, threatening to carry out attacks
during the upcoming Commonwealth Games.

Meanwhile, investigators also said that the pressure
cooker used to prepare a explosive device that went off inside
a car near the firing spot on the same day was bought from
Sadar Bazar area.
