India: Computer responsible for bomb warning emails seized.

The property where computer is found is rented by a US National? Police seize computer in Mumbai raid.

NEW DELHI: Police have raided a house near India’s financial capital Mumbai as part of a probe into a series of bomb attacks in the western city of Ahmedabad that killed 45 people, reports said Sunday. The police seized a computer they say was the source of an email claiming responsibility for Saturday’s attacks on behalf of a little-known group calling itself the “Indian Mujahedeen,” the reports said. A similar email was sent to news channels by the same group after a series of blasts in May in the western Indian city of Jaipur that killed more than 60 people.

The NDTV news channel said the property raided was rented to a US national. No arrests or detentions were made but authorities confiscated the computer’s hard drive.
