Jammu and Kashmir Police and the National Investigation Agency teams Thursday arrested two more people from Kishtwar for their link to an email claiming that terror group Harkat-ul-Jehadi-Islami had triggered last week's Delhi High Court blast, sources said.

The police sources said that the two -- Amir Abbas Dev and Hilal Asmin alias Hafiz -- were arrested on the disclosure made by two youths arrested Wednesday.

Police sources said that the disclosures made by the two people arrested earlier were being corroborated. "This is a big lead but no conclusions need to be drawn at this moment," a senior officer associated with investigations told IANS.

The email claiming responsibility of Sep 7 Delhi blast by the terrorist outfit originated from Kishtwar town, 230 km from Jammu.
