"Indian Mujahedeen" claim Jaipur blasts
A little-known organization called the Indian Mujahedeen claimed responsibility for serial terror blasts in Jaipur (Rajasthan state), which killed 63 and wounded more than 150 on May 13. Indian Mujahideen is the same group that had sent an e-mail to some TV channels minutes before the serial blasts in Lucknow, Faizabad and Varanasi in last November. (NDTV, May 15) Leaders of the opposition BJP, including Atal Bihari Vajpayee and LK Advani, took the opportunity to lash out at the government's "soft on terror policy." (Times of India, May 15)
