New Delhi: Another mail was received by media houses in Mumbai and Delhi supposedly written by one ‘Chotoo’ of the Indian Mujahideen, who claimed responsibility for the Delhi High Court blasts and warned that another blast will happen at a shopping mall.
The mail sent from ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ was received at 12:37 pm claiming the Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (HuJI) had no role to play in the blasts.
The mail also articulate they had chosen Wednesday as it was a busy day for the High Court. The Delhi High Court hears public interest litigations on Wednesday.
“We are examining the email received by media houses… about its authenticity and veracity and (we are) taking it seriously,” Secretary, Internal Security, U K Bansal told reporters.
Security agencies including the National Investigation Agency (NIA) are looking into the mail although serious apprehensions were being raised whether this was authentic or a prank being played by somebody.
But, the mail does not resemble the earlier mails sent by Indian Mujahideen which had claimed responsibilities for blasts in Varanasi and Delhi.
The new mail comes a day after Bangladesh-based terror group Harkat-ul-Jehadi-Islami (HuJI) claimed responsibility for the blast which killed at least 12 people and injured over 70.
