New Delhi, Jan 30:

The Delhi police in CCTV footage have spotted two persons getting off from a cab near the Israel embassy in New Delhi, where a bomb of low intensity exploded on Friday evening.
While the cab has been traced it is yet to be ascertained whether the duo played any role in the explosion, even as Israeli investigators, are slated to visit New Delhi, to assist the police in the investigation.
The Delhi Police Special Cell contacted the concerned cab driver and enquired about the two persons. Police are in the process of drawing out the sketches of the two persons on the basis of inputs gathered from the cab driver.
The police are on high alert following the Israel Embassy low-intensity blast and sources have confirmed that ammonium nitrate was used for the explosion. Police also found a camera hidden behind a tree near the blast site. Besides they found an envelope addressed to Israel Ambassador from the blast site. Police are tracing its fingerprints and examining its contents. Sources have also said this blast may be a trial of some “bigger conspiracy”. Israel is treating the bomb blast as a terrorist attack.
A low-intensity explosion took place near the Israel Embassy on Friday evening. The ball bearings seized from the spot were found scattered on the ground and the impact of the explosion was felt within a radius of 20-25 metres. While no injuries were reported in the incident so far windscreens of several cars parked in the vicinity of the Embassy on Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Road were found damaged.
Investigation is ongoing, gathering all evidence from the scene. There’s full collaboration between Indian & Israeli authorities. As of now, our strong assumption is that it’s a terror attack that targeted Israeli Embassy. Fortunately nobody was hurt,  Ron Malka, Israeli Envoy said while speaking to a news agency.
Security has been increased in the nearby areas and an alert has also been issued at all airports, important installations, and government buildings. The Mumbai Police is also on high alert and security has been stepped up in the financial capital. After the blast, there is also a high alert in Uttar Pradesh.
In the meanwhile Jaish-Ul-Hind has claimed responsibility for the blast near Israel Embassy. According to a TV report, central probe agencies have recovered a chat on social media wherein the terror outfit can be seen taking pride over the attack.
In another development a suspicious looking bag was found near the police commissioner’s office in Ahmednagar in Western Maharashtra on Saturday morning. It was taken over by police and further investigation is on.
