Eight days after the Delhi high court blast killed 13 people, the police arrested three school students — two in Jammu’s Kishtwar district and one in Jharkhand — for sending emails claiming responsibility for the attack.

There was, however, no word on their role in the blast although union home secretary RK Singh confirmed the arrests and said the two Class 11 students of Kishtwar had been sent to jail.

Singh, however, revealed that investigators were working on some leads.“We have clues. But we do not want to disclose whatever progress we have made as it will hamper the investigation,” he said.

The Kolkata Police arrested a teenager — a student from Jharkhand’s Pakur district — for sending two emails, threatening to carry out more attacks, including one on a shopping mall. He will be produced before a juvenile court.

The two emails — both in the name of Chotoo of the Indian Mujahideen — was traced to the DAV school student’s home after New Delhi approached the US for assistance.

The Ahmedabad police earlier arrested a data entry operator, Manu Oza, 24, for sending an email.
