Police in New Delhi are 'on the hunt" for the biker that allegedly latched an explosive on an Israeli diplomatic vehicle on Monday, the BBC reported according to the Delhi Police Commissioner on Tuesday.

"Police are on the hunt for the biker, wearing a brown jacket and driving a red-colored bike, who attached a magnetic device to the Israeli embassy car when it was standing at the Aurangzeb Road red light," MK Gupta said according to the BBC.

Meanwhile, Indian Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram said that the attack on the Israeli mission in the Indian capital - just 500 meters from the Prime Minister's Residence - was the work of a "well-trained person," vowing to find those responsible.

Israel has implicated Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah in the near simultaneous attacks that occurred in India and the Georgian capital Tbilisi. Police defused a bomb in the latter attack.

Iran has denied that accusations, instead saying Israel carried out the attacks on its own diplomatic personnel as part of a "psychological war against Iran."
