A caller claimed Sunday that a little-known Islamic group in the Kashmir insurgency was behind terror bombings that killed at least 59 people at two crowded markets the day before in India’s capital. Police said earlier that 61 people died in the Saturday night explosions, but lowered the figure Sunday, saying some deaths had been counted twice.

Investigators were questioning numerous people after raids on dozens of small hotels across New Delhi. Authorities said they had gathered “lots of information” about the attacks, but declined to comment on the claim of responsibility. With security tightened in New Delhi and across many states in India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh held an emergency Cabinet meeting Sunday evening to discuss the attacks.

“We have lots of information but it is not proper to disclose it yet,” Patil told journalists after the meeting. “Our people are making good progress. The investigation is going well.” A man saying he represented the militant group Islamic Inquilab Mahaz (Front for Islamic Uprising) made the claim in a call to the Kashmir News Service in India’s portion of Kashmir, a Himalayan region also claimed by Pakistan where Muslim separatists have waged a 16-year-old insurgency.

The smaller group is tied to the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, the most feared militant group in Kashmir, police said. U.S. officials have linked the group to al-Qaida. The caller, who identified himself as Ahmed Yaar Ghaznavi, said the attack “was meant as a rebuff to the claims of Indian security groups” that militant fighters had been wiped out by military crackdowns and the mammoth earthquake that hit Oct. 8.

Home Minister Shivraj Patil refused to comment on the claim. But a leading anti-terrorism expert said earlier that the timing and nature of the bombings appeared to indicate the work of Lashkar-e-Tayyaba. “It looks like Lashkar. They are the most active group here,” said Vikram Sood, the former head of the Research and Analysis Wing, India’s external intelligence agency.

A police spokesman said during the day that 22 people had been detained in the hotel raids, but declined to give further details, citing the sensitive nature of the investigation. Police officials later insisted no one was detained, but said people were being questioned. The first explosion hit at 5:45 p.m. in New Delhi’s main Paharganj market, killing 16 people and leaving bloodstained streets and mangled stalls of wood and twisted metal.

Within minutes, an explosion at the Sarojini Nagar market killed 43 people and a bomb meant for a bus in the Govindpuri neighborhood injured nine. Police said the three blasts wounded 188 people in all, several seriously.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
