Even as investigators grapple with the problem of ascertaining the organisation responsible for Thursday’s blasts in Dilsukhnagar, BJP chief G Kishan Reddy received a postal card , in which unknown persons claimed that the blasts were the handiwork of Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT), an islamic militant organisation.

Police, dismissing the letter as a prank, did not register a case. The 15 paise postal card, which reached BJP’s state party office at Nampally on Saturday, was handed over to the Abids police for investigation.

“Written in English, the person said the next target would be Beguz Bazar,” inspector G Guru Raghavendra said.

The postal stamp, that could have revealed information about the locality from where it might have been posted, was unclear.

Meanwhile, Kishan Reddy expressed his displeasure over Prime Minister Manmohan Singh not visiting the family members of those who died in the blasts. He said it was unfortunate that Singh did not make a statement on the government’s resolve to fight terrorism nor did he hand out a warning to terrorists.

Speaking to media here Sunday, Reddy took objection to Singh paying just lip sympathy to victims.
