Claiming responsibility for Friday’s killing of a constable here, a little known city-based group having alleged links with LeT and SIMI has warned of more “revenge attacks” if perpetrators of the Mecca Masjid firing were not brought to book.

Police found a CD near the place where the constable died after the firing by unidentified motorcycle-borne assailants in the Old City area here.

The CD contained neither any audio nor video, but had a letter in Urdu attributed to Tehrik-e-Galiba Islam warning of more attacks if the government fails to order arrest of those responsible for police firing after May 18 Mecca Masjid blast in Hyderabad three years ago, police said.

The group said several innocent Muslims were killed in the police firing immediately after the blast, adding it would take revenge if government failed to arrest those involved in the firing.
