Iran Behind New Delhi Blast: Indian Police

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard was behind the February terrorist attack on the Israeli Embassy in New Delhi, an investigation by India Police has found.

In the incident, which took place on February 13, 2012, Tali Yehoshua-Koren, the wife of the Defense Ministry’s representative to India, was injured.

The Times of India newspaper, which published the findings of the investigation, reported that members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard began speaking with Indian journalist Syed Mohammad Ahmad Kazmi about the possibility of carrying out an attack against Israeli diplomats in New Delhi as early as February 2011, over a year before the attack. At the time, a number of Iranian nuclear scientists were assassinated, and Tehran blamed Israel for the deaths.

The investigation found that Kazmi, who is so far the only person who has been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the attack, had been in contact with the Iranian regime for at least ten years.
