New Delhi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) sources on Friday told CNN-IBN that the e-mail supposedly sent by the Indian Mujahideen claiming responsibility for the Delhi blast has been traced to West Bengal even as a third e-mail surfaced warning of an attack in Ahmedabad. However, efforts are still underway to trace the IP address of the Indian Mujahideen e-mail.
The third e-mail sent to Delhi Police was in codes which had to be deciphered to reveal the target as Ahmedabad. The e-mail threatens an attack in the Gujarat capital. Gujarat, specifically Ahmedabad has been put on a high alert. Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, meanwhile, also advised other states to remain vigilant.
“This is to inform you that we Indian Mujahideen claims the terror attack on Delhi High Court. I just want you to pass a message to the Indian government that next blast will be so cruel that you people won’t be able to forget it for decay (decades) and if you are willing to know the next attack it is 1,8,5,13,4,1,2,1,4 till you come to know what it stands for the next blast will be done if you have any question get back soon because we don’t have time for anything,” the e-mail sent from the id email@example.com reads.
The numbers were decoded to reveal Ahmedabad as the target as per the e-mail.
Sources say that the e-mail has been traced to Moscow, which seems to be a shadow route to camouflage the location of the real senders.
