New Delhi, Feb 26 (IANS) Mohammed Mansoor Peerbhoy, a computer engineer and alleged key operative of the Indian Mujahideen (IM) terror outfit, will be brought to the national capital from Mumbai Friday to be quizzed over his alleged role in the Sep 13, 2008 Delhi blasts, a police official said.
“Peerbhoy will be brought to Delhi tomorrow (Friday) to be presented before the Tis Hazari court,” a senior Delhi Police official told IANS.

Peerbhoy is accused of sending terror email to media outlets minutes before the serial bombings in Delhi Sep 13 last year, which killed 24 people.

Peerbhoy’s revelations are expected to give the police insights into the role of the absconding IM plotters, Riyaz Bhatkal and his brother Iqbal, and Amir Reza Khan.

According to the police, Peerbhoy worked with a multinational software company in Pune, earning an annual salary of Rs 1.9 million.

He allegedly hacked unsecured WiFi networks in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai and sent e-mails to TV news channels minutes before the July 26 Ahmedabad blasts and Delhi explosions.
