More than a month after an explosion outside the Israel embassy in Delhi in late January, India’s counterterrorism agencies have drawn up a list of suspects. The investigations so far have concluded that the Iranian Quds force was behind the terror plot but that the bomb was planted by a local Indian Shia module, the Hindustan Times has reported quoting sources. A low-intensity device exploded outside the Israel embassy on January 29. Agencies found that the explosive device used was not crude as it appeared to be. Instead, it was a remote-controlled device triggered off by a bomber using line of sight.
Indian agencies recovered from the spot a letter addressed to Israel’s ambassador to India Ron Malka, calling him a terrorist and devil from a terrorist nation. The case is now being investigated by Indian agencies, with the involvement of experts from Israeli spy agency Mossad.
