Mumbai, July 27 (IANS) A team of the Mumbai Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) Sunday went to Navi Mumbai to probe claims by an American national living there that his email id had been hacked by unknown people to send an email in the name of ‘Indian Mujahideen’ warning of bombings minutes before the Ahmedabad serial blasts. An ATS team rushed to Sanpada suburb in Navi Mumbai, adjacent to Mumbai, where the US national, identified as 48-year-old Callis Q, lives.

An official of Navi Mumbai police told IANS Sunday morning that the American national was a tenant in one of the flats in the posh Gunina Apartments for the past six months.

After the email from the Indian Mujahideen was received by intelligence agencies and some media offices, its IP address was traced to a computer in a flat belonging to one Abhishek Sharma in Navi Mumbai.

Police personnel have been deployed in Gunina Apartments.

Meanwhile, the Maharashtra police and home department officials went into an emergency meeting to discuss the security situation in the state in the wake of the Ahmedabad terror attacks, an official said here.
