July 30, 2009 13:38 IST

A 'sleazy' email addressed to President Pratibha Patil has landed a student of a reputed engineering college in Bengaluru in trouble, with a team from the Delhi police arriving in the city to question the MTech student.

Sources told rediff.com that the student had sent the email to the President last week. Although the exact contents of the mail are unknown, sources said it was deemed 'sleazy' and a complaint was lodged with the Delhi police. The police in turn managed to track down the IP address from which the email was sent and tracked the person down.

A Delhi police team arrived in Bengaluru on Wednesday and headed straight to Mysore where the student hailed from. However, they did not find the student there and on questioning his parents about his whereabouts learnt that he was pursuing a masters degree at an engineering college in Bengaluru, following which the police team reached the college to question him.

It is still unclear whether the police have managed to locate the student. Sources said he was absconding.
