Mumbai: The Indian Mujahideen module,
which sent the terror mail claiming responsibility for the
Varanasi blast, had hacked into a broadband Internet
connection of a Navi Mumbai resident.

Police sources said that the Wireless Fidelity (WiFi)
that was used to send the five-page email was traced to a
house in Sector 17, Vashi in Navi Mumbai.

The house owner`s insecure WiFi was hacked into, the
sources said, adding the logger of the router has been
disabled so there is no trace of who logged into it and hacked
it.

The police questioned the man and believe that he is
innocent.

Mumbai Police had picked up the father-son duo for
questioning here in connection with the e-mail sent by
banned terror group Indian Mujahideen.

The terror mail was quickly traced to the residential
complex in Navi Mumabi. Indian Mujahideen had claimed
responsibility for yesterday`s blast at a crowded bathing ghat
in Varanasi that left a child dead and 37 others injured.

Terrorists of Indian Mujahideen have been using
unsecured WiFi connections for sending mails to media houses
within minutes of blasts taking place.

The e-mail ID used were from Gmail. The mail was written
on December 6 and the account has been accessed rarely, the
sources said.
