New Delhi: Blast near Israel embassy

A low-intensity blast took place near the Israel embassy in New Delhi around 5pm on Friday, coinciding with the anniversary of India and Israel establishing full diplomatic relations on January 29, 1992. No one was injured, but window panes of three cars were damaged.

The explosion occurred barely 2km away from the Beating Retreat ceremony.

With Israeli officials treating it as a suspected terror attack, Delhi Police handed over the probe to anti-terror unit. Mossad is assisting Indian agencies in the investigation. An FIR under the Explosives Act has been registered.

An envelope with “Israeli ambassador” written on it was found at the spot.
