IM takes onus of Delhi blast; warns of 2nd attack

Last updated on: September 08, 2011 16:25 IST

Terror outfit Indian Mujahideen send a new mail on Thursday claiming responsibility for Wednesday's Delhi high court blast.

The mail which was sent to media channel Headlines Today by one 'chotoo minani ayushman' also rubbished the previous claim by Harkat-ul-Jihadi Islami on the blast which killed 12 people and injured more than 75 people.

The channel has already forwarded the mail to the National Investigation Agency, probing the matter.

The mail, which was written in Hindi, stated, "HuJI has no role to play in yesterday's blast at Delhi, because we, the Indian Mujahideen, has orchestrated the attack."

"We had a plan to strike at the court on a Wednesday, as it is most crowded on that day of the week. There can be absolutely no possibility of any HuJI involvement in the blast," the sender reiterated.

The mail also warned of a 'next terror attack' on coming Tuesday 'which will take place outside a shopping mall.' The mail further dared authorities to stop them from executing their plan.

Special DG of the NIA Prakash Mishra said, "We are taking this mail seriously and are already working on tracking it."

Within hours of Wednesday's attack, a mail sent allegedly by HuJI claimed responsibility for the attack. Police detained two owners of a cyber café at Kishtwar in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday in connection with that mail.
