Ghaziabad, May 15 (IANS) The owner of a cyber cafe from where an e-mail claiming responsibility for the Jaipur blasts was sent was detained by the police here 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, “guru_al_hindi_jaipur@yahoo.co.uk”, is similar to “guru_alhindi@yahoo.fr” 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.
