New Delhi, Oct 2: The Gujarat police are facing a strange problem. Over the past four days the Gujarat police have received nine anonymous letters threatening that there would be blasts in the state. Today the police received six letters in which a threat to carry out blasts in temples was made.
Four days back the police received three letters in which a threat to blow up banks and schools was made. The investigations have shown that all the letters were sent by the same person. These were handwritten letters in the name of the Indian Mujahideen. On analyzing the handwriting the Raopura police who got the letters have able confirm that all were written by the same person.
The police say that they are in the process of hunting this person down. Some of the letters have been written in the name of former Paksitan foreign minister, Hina Rabbani Khar. These wave of letters have kept the police on their toes.
Although they are fully aware that these are hoax letters, they still cannot take a chance. The Gujarat police however say that there is no cause for panic and checks have been conducted in all the locations that have threatened to be blown up.
The Gujarat police have been troubled over the past couple of days. Recently an intelligence alert suggested that 12 persons had entered into the state and were planning on carrying out fidayeen strikes. However there has been no headway in this particular case, leading the police to believe that it was a false alert.
The Gujarat police were kept busy last month too when the NIA landed up in the state to hunt for two persons of Pakistan origin. However the arrest of the two persons in Gujarat turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.
