Advani not to cancel trip

Police have claimed to have identified the cyber cafe from which the e-mail, purportedly sent by Indian Mujahideen [Images] terrorists, to eliminate BJP leader L K Advani [Images] during his Shillong visit on September 29, was sent.

Refusing to disclose the name of the cafe, state DGP B K Dey Sawian told PTI the mail was sent from a cafe in Shillong.

"Definitely the e-mail was not sent by a prankster. It's a two-page mail written with specific inputs and details. We are taking it seriously and working on it to trace the sender," Sawian said.

He said the police was taking the matter very seriously.

"Advani is given the highest category security, yet we cannot afford to take any chances," the DGP said.

When asked whether the police had any specific input about the presence of Indian Mujahideen militants in the state, Sawian said, "As of now we do not have specific inputs on that, but it cannot be ruled out."

"Soon after the blasts in Ahmedabad [Images] and Delhi [Images], we have put certain places across the state under scanner acting on intelligence inputs. We are looking at those (places)," he added.
