Indian Mujahideen , a not well-known terrorist outfit, claimed responsibility for carrying out the bomb blasts in Jaipur on Tuesday. And to buttress its claim, it sent video clippings to the media of a cycle strapped with a bag that it claimed held the bomb.
The video was sent to the media in Delhi. It mentioned the number 129489 etched on the frame of the cycle shown in the clip. The Mujahideen claimed that the cycle was the one that was used for the explosion at Kotwali near Choti Chaupad in Jaipur.
While such claims in the aftermath of a major terror attack are not uncommon and have even been used by the real culprits to throw the investigators off the trail, what lends credence to the claim in this instance is that terrorist groups used an identical email ID to announce the blasts in Uttar Pradesh in November 2006.
