No clues yet on Israeli car blast

New Delhi: Investigators were today looking for clues from CCTV footage in connection with the bomb attack on an Israeli embassy car in a high-security area here which left four persons, including a mission employee, injured.

A motorcycle-borne assailant had stuck a bomb on the car in which the Israeli embassy employee was travelling which exploded injuring her and four others on Monday afternoon on Aurangezeb Road near the Prime Minister`s Residence.

Sources said they were yet to make any headway in the case which took place at 3:16 PM on Monday. "We are scourging the CCTV footage. We are investigating whether the attacker was trailing the car for the past four days," a senior police official said. Eye-witnesses have told investigators that the attacker was wearing a red helmet and brown jacket.

The first major targeting of an Israeli official in the capital came hours after police defused a bomb targeting an Israeli Embassy car in Tbilisi, capital of a former Soviet republic, coinciding with the fourth death anniversary of Hezbullah commander Imad Mughniyeh.

Delhi Police Commissioner B K Gupta on Tuesday did not hazard a guess on whether it was a terror attack and maintained it was definitely a device targeting the Embassy Toyota Innova vehicle.
