The Union home ministry has handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) the investigation into the blast near the Israel embassy in New Delhi.
A low-intensity IED blast took place near the Israeli Embassy in the heart of the national capital on Friday evening. No one was injured.
“The investigation into the blast near the Israeli embassy has been handed over to the NIA,” a home ministry official told a news agency.
Four vehicles were damaged in the blast that occurred about 150 metres from the embassy on Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Road in Delhi.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday to convey his strong condemnation of the attack and asserted that India will deploy all its resources to find and punish the perpetrators.
Both leaders, the PMO said, expressed satisfaction about the close coordination between Indian and Israeli security agencies in connection with the blast probe.
The Israeli foreign ministry said all its diplomats and embassy staff in Delhi are “safe and sound”.
