Delhi Blast 2011
New Delhi, Sept 12: While the Delhi police and other investigative agencies are grappling with no leads in the Delhi High Court blast case, it has now emerged that one of the emails sent to TV channels have been found to be fake. The mail was believed to be sent by a person in Gujarat and he has been arrested.

The man arrested is understood to be an unemployed youth and identified as Monu and his mail had claimed responsibility for the Delhi High Court blasts on Sept 7. Sources have revealed that the man is presently being questioned by police officials to understand his real intention for sending the mail.

He had mentioned in the mail of possible terror strikes on Ahmedabad. The police have registered an FIR against him under the IT Act. Despatching the mail under the email ID 'Kill Bill', he had lost his job recently and was depply distressed. Police sources said, "He told us he coded Ahmedabad in his email as the next target and sent it to Delhi police. We are still questioning him."

Monu had forwarded the mail to the Delhi Police and had claimed responsiblity on behalf of Indian Mujahideen and had signed it in the name of Ali Saed El-Hoorie, a Saudi fugitive who is also named in the FBI's most wanted list.

Meanwhile, the police are tracing the origon of the other mails as well. An NIA official has been quoted as saying, "We have been able to trace the IP address and will soon catch the sender of the email. The cooperation from Kolkata police has been sought."
