A letter,purportedly written by terror outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba,has threatened to blow up Haridwar railway station and temples in the city on December 29,the police said Thursday.
The letter,addressed to Haridwar railway station Superintendent Gopal Krishna Das,has been written by a person who introduced himself as LeT area commander Karim Ansari,the police said.
