NEW DELHI - India is investigating an email allegedly sent by the outlawed South Asian militant group Harkat-ul-Jihad Islami (HUJI) claiming responsibility for a bomb attack in New Delhi, which killed at least 10 people on Wednesday, said a senior Indian security official.

National Investigation Agency chief S.C. Sinha told reporters he was taking the contents of the email seriously. The outlawed HUJI has bases in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The claim of responsibility came as India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was on an official visit to neighboring Bangladesh, the first visit by an Indian prime minister in 12 years.
