An unclaimed body at Sion Hospital in central Mumbai is now in the focus of Maharashtra Anti Terrorist Squad which is ascertaining if the person killed was one of the perpetrators of the serial blasts as has been claimed in one of the e-mails received by a TV channel.

ATS chief K P Raghuvanshi said a DNA profiling has been done of the deceased and experts have been asked to prepare a sketch of the body whose upper torso and mutilated face remain.

The person is suspected to have died in one of the blasts either at Mahim or Matunga railway stations on July 11.

An e-mail received by a TV channel has claimed that all the executors of the blasts escaped safely, except one who was killed in the blasts. Raghuvanshi said veracity of this claim in the e-mail can be ascertained only when the unclaimed body is identified.

He said two persons, who were searching for their missing relatives, had visited the mortuary in the past few days to have a look at the deceased but they returned saying that the body was not of their kin.

"One of them told the people (at mortuary) that he would return with his uncle living in Madhya Pradesh to identity the body again," Raghuvanshi said.
