New Delhi: Delhi Police has constituted three teams comprising 200 policemen to investigate the September 07 Delhi HC bomb blast case.

The teams, under Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ashok Chand, will also interact with the National Investigation Agency (NIA), which has been entrusted with the probe of the blast case, Delhi Police Commissioner BK Gupta said here on Friday.

Meanwhile, sources said the police has received an e-mail last night purportedly sent by Indian Mujahideen claiming responsibility for the blast.

The police is also in the process of releasing a third sketch of a blast suspect, the sources said.

According to the sources, the e-mail received last night has a code word which could be deciphered as Ahmedabad being the next target.

The blast has left 13 people dead and nearly 90 injured in the terror attack outside the Delhi High Court.

Gupta said the three teams formed under Chand and Deputy Commissioner of Police Arun Kampani will have regular interactions with the NIA which is probing the blast case.

"They will interact with NIA. The teams will conduct investigations and senior officials will be reviewing it every third or fourth day. We have brought together best resources. Officers who have experience in handling such cases have been asked to join the group," he said.

Gupta said the teams have been given full "operational freedom" to carry out the investigation.

He also said CCTV cameras will be installed in 44 places in a month's time.

ECIL, he said, will install them at various courts in Delhi.
