Investigators have traced the HuJI email claiming responsibility for the blast outside the Delhi High Court to a cybercafe in Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar district and were today poring over initial forensic reports for definite leads.
A massive manhunt was launched to nab the perpetrators of the blast even as Home Minister P Chidambaram held a high-level meeting to take stock of the situation. National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon was present at the meeting.
"We are investigating the email link from Kishtwar district in connection with the Delhi blast," DGP Kuldeep Khoda said in Jammu.
Khoda said no arrests have been made so far. Five people were detained for questioning, including the owner of the cybercafe.
Sources identified the apprehended cybercafé owner as Mehmood Aziz Khwaja, 28, of Karsan Balla mohalla in Kishtwar town. His cybercafe is near Shahidi Chowk – the main market in the town.
Khwaja also owns a mobile repair shop. His brother Majid has also been detailed for questioning. Their employee Ashiwini Kumar, who looks after the cybercafe business, has also been held.
Two others, Imran and Ashiq Hussain, were also picked up for questioning.
Over half a dozen people, including regular visitors to the cybercafe are being questioned, police sources said.
The police said the email was sent from the address firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bangladesh-based terror outfit had yesterday claimed responsibility for the blast.
The mail read: "We own responsibility for the blast at the High Court, Delhi. Our demand is that Afzal Guru's death sentence should be repealed immediately as we would target major High Courts and the Supreme Court of India."
Sources said that HuJI had been operational mainly in the Kishtwar area of Jammu region until all of its members were either killed or apprehended by police and security forces. The group's last militant Junaid was arrested from Dachhan area by police in 2009, sources said.
