Tal Yehoshua-Koren, the wife of an Israeli diplomat injured in a terror attack in New Delhi on Monday, gave her testimony on the incident to Indian investigators before leaving for Israel in an air ambulance on Friday, The Times of India reported.

According to the report, Koren told Indian police that a bomber wearing black clothes and riding a black motorcycle stuck the bomb on the vehicle and that it exploded only 30 or 40 seconds later.

"I saw a biker close to my car when I was going to the American embassy. There was a push on the car from behind and I saw the biker. I thought the biker had touched the car. I even lowered the windowpanes to say something to him but he escaped by then," the Times quoted Koren as saying.

Officials told the Times that Koren's testimony could change their assumptions that the bomb was a low-intensity incendiary device which explodes in three to five seconds. They added that a bomb that took longer to explode would likely have a timer or remote device.
