New Delhi, Jul 27: The IP address of the terror e-mail sent by terror group named Indian Mujahideen ahead of the Ahmedabad blast was traced by the Investigators on Sunday, July 27.

Sources said that a terror group named 'Indian Mujahideen' sent an e-mail to a television news channel, minutes ahead of the serial blasts that ripped Ahmedabad on Saturday on July 26, fresh leads developed as probe over the blast continued. The IP address of the e-mail sent by the said terror group just minutes before the first blast was triggered has been traced to a residential house in Sanpada, Navi Mumbai.

The email from the 'Indian Mujaheideen' is said to be sent from a Yahoo mail account of Al-Arabi Gujarat via an internet connection used in the name of Camp Kell White. Investigators suspect that the user of this account might be staying in Mumbai as a tenant. The raid was conducted in this house on Saturday, July 26 night. The police said that if they receive any concrete information, they will disclose it to the media.

We are investigating whether the e-mail was sent from the residence. Presently, personal verifications of the person living there are being carried out and it would be too premature to comment on it," a senior official from the Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) said.

17 co-ordinated serial blasts rocked the city of Ahmedabad on Saturday killing 39 people and injuring 105.

The synchronised low intensity blasts took place a day after similar serial blasts rocked Bangalore, the IT hub on Friday, July 25 killing one women and injuring 15.

The group 'Indian Mujahideen' had sent a 14-page email to select TV channels.
