07 September 2011

A day after the deadly attack outside the Delhi High Court, investigators have traced the Harkat-ul -Jehadi Islami email claiming responsibility for the blast to Kishtwar district of Jammu and Kashmir.

“We are investigating the email link from Kishtwar district in connection with the Delhi blast,” DGP Kuldeep Khoda said.

There is an input about an email being sent from Kishtwar district, he said, adding police is working on it.

Khoda said no arrests have been made so far.

According to police sources, the email was sent from a cyber cafe in Kishtwar from the address harkatuljihadi2011@gmail.com

The outfit had on Wednesday claimed responsibility for the blast outside the Delhi High Court which killed at least 11 people and injured over 70.

“We own responsibility of the blast at the High Court, Delhi. Our demand is that Afzal Guru’s death sentence should be repealed immediately as we would target major High Courts and the Supreme Court of India,” the HuJI email said.

Secretary (Internal Secretary) in the Home Ministry, U.K. Bansal had said on Wednesday that the NIA is also verifying the authenticity of the email received by two media channels.

Asked about the communication received by TV channels, Director General of NIA S C Sinha had said, “It is too premature to comment on the HuJI mail but we are looking at it seriously because HuJI is a very prominent terrorist group which considers India as target number one.”

Delhi Police has in the past arrested several HuJI militants from the national capital.
