Students Islamic Movement of India, which was rechristened as the Indian Mujahideen [Images], is at it again. The newly-floated wing of the SIMI [Images] has claimed responsibility for the Delhi [Images] attack and has also warned the next strikes would be at Chennai and Mumbai.
Openly challenging investigators and security agencies in their mail, the Indian Mujahideen has stated that next on their target would be the metropolitan cities of Chennai and Mumbai.
The IM has challenged this department as the Cyber Forensic wing had managed to intercept their mails, which were sent in the aftermath of the Ahmedabad [Images] blasts. The IM states that they would continue to strike and have once again challenged security agencies to stop them if they could.
Further, the IM also poses a challenge to Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilas Rao Deshmukh. The IM has issued this threat since most of their operations were unearthed in Maharashtra as the email was traced back to that state. Moreover, there was a lot of discord about the manner in which several persons were picked up in the aftermath of the blasts in Mumbai.
IB sources told rediff.com that Indian Mujahideen has been recruiting tech savvy persons into the outfit since the past one year. The IB says that most of the boys who are recruited into this outfit are from the Hyderabad area and their speciality was to hack into email ids and send out mails.
