A blast outside India's Delhi High Court on Wednesday morning that authorities said resulted from a terror attack killed at least 11 people and injured dozens, the biggest to hit the Indian capital since a series of market blasts detonated three years ago, killing 25.
Several news organizations reported receiving an email allegedly from Harkat-ul-Jihad Islami (HUJI), a Pakistani Islamist terror group, claiming responsibility.

NEW DELHI: Even as investigators struggled to find a breakthrough in the Delhi high court blast case, another terror email, warning of an impending attack, has reportedly surfaced. The name of Ahmedabad figures in the email which was sent under a numerical code. Gujarat, specifically Ahmedabad has now been put on a high alert.
A high intensity briefcase bomb ripped through the crowded reception area in the high court on Wednesday. 13 people died and over 70 people were injured in the blast that took place between Gate No.4 and 5 when around 200 visitors, mostly litigants, were waiting in queue to get passes to enter the premises
India's Home Minister P Chidambaram has said it is likely that an attack on the Delhi high court was carried out by militants based in India. "We can no longer point to cross-border terrorism as a source of terror attacks in India," Mr Chidambaram told the BBC.
The two groups who have purportedly said they carried out the attack are Harkat-ul Jihad al-Islami (Huji) and the Indian Mujahideen. Mr Chidambaram said (Huji) had not been active in India for a while.
Indian Mujahideen (Hindi: इंडियन मुजाहिदीन ) is an indigenous terrorist group in India, that has claimed responsibility for several attacks against innocent targets in India. Believed to be a "shadow amalgam of the Students Islamic Movement of India", the Indian Mujahideen have been declared a terrorist organization. However, no decision had been made to ban the organisation as of 28 September 2008.
Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (Arabic: حركة الجهاد الإسلامي, Ḥarkat al-Jihād al-Islāmiyah, meaning "Islamic Struggle Movement", HuJI) is an Islamic fundamentalist organization most active in South Asian countries of Pakistan, Bangladesh and India since the early 1990s. It was banned in Bangladesh in 2005. The operational commander of HuJI, Ilyas Kashmiri, was reportedly killed in a U.S. Predator drone strike in South Waziristan on June 4, 2011. He was linked to the February 13, 2010 bombing of a German bakery in the Indian city of Pune. A statement was released soon after the attack which claimed to be from Kashmiri; it threatened other cities and major sporting events in India.
