e-Mail Notice Sent Prior to Delhi Explosions

Agam Shah writes on

An e-mail claiming responsibility for the bomb blasts in India's capital Delhi on Saturday was sent five minutes prior to the actual explosions, media organizations said.

The e-mail, sent by a poster claiming to be from the Indian Mujahideen, said that Delhi was about to be hit with blasts, and the militant organization would strike other locations in India. The e-mail, which was sent to news organizations in India including Zee Enterprise, was sent from a Yahoo e-mail account that was traced back to a Mumbai address.

On further investigation, it was determined the e-mail was sent around the time of the first blast, Parambir Singh, additional commissioner of Mumbai police's antiterror unit told the Press Trust of India on Sunday.

A coordinated stream of five bombs exploded in different areas in Delhi on Saturday evening, including densely populated areas, killing close to 30 people. More bombs were being defused, according to media reports.
