The owner of a cyber cafe from where an e-mail claiming responsibility for the Jaipur blasts was sent was detained by the police in Ghaziabad on Thursday.
Police officials said Madhukar Mishra, the owner of Naveen Computer Jobs, a cyber cafe in Sahibabad area of Ghaziabad right on the border with the national capital, has been detained for questioning.
An e-mail by a group claiming responsibility for Tuesday's serial bomb blasts in Jaipur was sent from this cyber cafe, said the police. The outfit, which also e-mailed videos of a cycle strapped with a bag it claimed held the bomb, reportedly called itself 'Indian Mujahideen'.
On Tuesday evening, eight bombs went off within 15 minutes in a one-kilometre stretch in Jaipur. Sixty-three people died in the heinous bombings and over 200 were injured.
The ID used for sending the e-mail about the blasts, "firstname.lastname@example.org", is similar to "email@example.com" from which some television channels had received an email minutes before blasts rocked the holy city of Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh on Nov 23, 2007. A total of five blasts in Lucknow, Faizabad and Varanasi had claimed 13 lives and left 80 wounded.
