New Delhi, Aug 19 (UNI) Embarrassed over the fleeing of US national Kenneth Haywood despite a look-out notice being issued against him, the Centre today said that it was inquiring into the matter.

''We are making inquiries into the matter,'' a Home Ministry spokesman said here when asked about the security goof up over the US national whose internet address was used to send a terror e-mail minutes before the Ahmedabad blasts.

Haywood escaped with his family yesterday from Indira Gandhi International Airport of the national capital despite a national look-out notice against him.

Maharashtra's Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) officers had summoned him a number of times in the past three days but he had failed to appear.

The ATS officers were to conduct a narco analysis on Kenneth.

The police had picked up the 44-year-old multinational employee from his residence in Navi Mumbai after investigations showed that his Internet Protocol (IP) address was used to send the e-mail.

Two days ago, Kenneth had expressed his frustration over "unnecessary prolongation of the investigation".

Haywood's computer had an unsecured router that did not need a password to access the Internet. Police suspect his computer was hacked into to send the terror email.
