Ghaziabad/Lucknow, May 15 (IANS) Police Thursday said they were making the sketch of the man who allegedly sent an e-mail on behalf of a terrorist group claiming responsibility for the Jaipur blasts. The drawing was being made on the basis of the description given by the owner of the cyber cafe in Ghaziabad from where the mail was sent. Madhukar Mishra, the owner of Naveen Computer Jobs, a cyber cafe in Sahibabad area of Ghaziabad right on the border with the national capital, had been detained by the police for questioning Thursday.

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.

Additional Director General of Uttar Pradesh Police Brij Lal told reporters in Lucknow that a sketch of the man who sent the e-mail was being drawn on the basis of the information provided by the cyber cafe owner. He added that the sketch might be released anytime during the day.

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.
