Fake Blast Threat in Jaipur by a Woman to teach boyfriend lesson

Peeved over the marriage of her boyfriend, a 25-year-old woman with an intention to land him in trouble sent an e-mail to chief minister's office and Jaipur police threatening a bomb blast on June 13, 2013. Police said Ritu Sharma had an affair with Amit Jain, who was married to some other girl some time back. Annoyed over the issue, Ritu sent the e-mail from a fake id to Chief Minister's Office, DGP, Jaipur Police commissioner and other police officers yesterday.
On Wednesday, an e-mail stating blasts in Jaipur on June 13 had put the officers of the Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) and of Jaipur police commissionerate in a tizzy. Jaipur police said the girl, a jilted lover, wanted to entangle her ex-lover in a serious case. After receiving this "threat" mail, the police intel and cyber crime unit officers of the commissionerate rushed to Amit Jain's residence at Pratap Nagar and brought him for interrogation. Meanwhile, cyber crime experts traced the IP address to a café in Vaishali Nagar. The cyber cafe owner verified that a woman named Ritu had visited the cafe yesterday. Initially, a team was sent to the woman’s place and during interrogation, she confessed and said she wanted to teach Amit a lesson. “The woman, in order to save herself, had also created a fake mail-id to send the mail,” Meena added. The woman has been booked under Section 66-A of IT Act. “She will be produced in a court on Friday,” Meena added.
