Indian police have detained two men in Mumbai in connection with an email which was allegedly sent by a terror outfit in the wake of attacks outside the famous Jama Masjid mosque here on Sunday, said police on Tuesday.

"Two persons were taken into custody for questioning after the email, purportedly sent by terror outfit Indian Mujahideen owning up the attacks, was tracked down to Vorivali, a Mumbai suburb. The email was sent to media houses after the attacks, firing at two tourists from Taiwan and a subsequent car blast," a senior police official said.

The official also said that the probe trail has now reached the northern state of Uttar Pradesh and a team has been sent to Azamgarh.

"We will divulge details later," he said.

Indian Mujahideen is a shadowy terror group held responsible by police in a series of bomb blasts in the country over the past two decades.
