Kannur, Aug 14 (ANI): The cyber cell of the Kerala Police has traced down an e-mail threat from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) warning of serial bomb blasts in the state, if a separate Muslim state, comprising districts of north Kerala, is not created.

Inspector General of Police Tomin Thachenkery said on Friday that a few media offices in the state had received the e-mail threat on Thursday.

The mail is from Etisalat in the UAE and the domain is that of Yahoo. A case has been registered with the Kannur Town Police Station.

Thachenkery informed that the e-mail was written by Zakhir Hussain who claims to be the head of the newly formed Malabar Mujahid which has its headquarters in Karachi, Pakistan, and has the support of the Inter-Services - Intelligence (ISI) and the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT).

If their demand for a separate Muslim state is not met, then bombs will be deployed across the state and for that they have already shipped seven kilograms of RDX, the e-mail reads.

It said the first of a series of bomb blasts would take place on Friday being the Independence Day of Pakistan.

The State Government has put the police on high alert and instructed all district headquarters to remain vigilant. (ANI)
