Iran v/s Israel in New Delhi
Exactly a month after ‘international terrorism’ hit New Delhi with a bomb attack on an Israeli diplomat’s car, the Delhi Police and intelligence agencies say they have identified the three Iranian nationals who planned and executed the bombing. Sources said the three, all holding Iranian passports, are Houshang Afshar Irani, Seyed Ali Mahdiansadr and Mohammad Reza Abolghasemi. They came to Delhi 15 days before the attack on tourist visas and left after the bombing for a middle eastern country. Houshang was the main bomber who stuck the magnetic IED on the Innova of the Israeli diplomat, Tal Yehoshua Koren, on February 13, a police source said, adding that the names were revealed by arrested Indian journalist S M A Kazmi. After identifying the attackers, the Delhi Police on Wednesday got “open warrants” issued against them. India will now formally give the names to the Iran government.
