An Indian national claiming to be a freelance journalist has been arrested in connection with the attack on an Israeli diplomat here last month and will be produced in a Delhi court Wednesday, police said.
“Mohammed Kazmi, in his early 50s, was arrested Tuesday night from south Delhi. He will be produced in the Tis Hazari court Wednesday afternoon,” a police official said.
Delhi Police said it has “almost cracked the case”. Four people were injured when an Israeli diplomat’s car was hit by a bomb near the Israeli embassy in the capital Feb 13.
Tal Yehoshua Koren, wife of the Israeli defence attache, suffered multiple injuries when a motorcycle rider attached a magnetic explosive device to her car and sped away. Within seconds, the device exploded with a thunderous sound, setting the car on fire.
Koren moved back to Israel after getting treatment at a private south Delhi hospital. Three others injured were discharged after being given medical attention.
