Indian police announced Wednesday the arrest of an Indian national claiming to work as a freelance journalist in connection with the terrorist attack on Israeli diplomatic personnel in New Delhi last month.
A police official said Mohammed Kazmi, a man in his early 50s, was arrested on Tuesday night in south New Delhi, Indian news website India Today reported.
"We have almost cracked the case," the official stated.
Israel blamed Iran for the February 13 attack near the Israeli embassy in the Indian capital, where assailants latched a sticky bomb onto an Israeli diplomatic vehicle near the Israeli embassy.
One diplomat's wife, Tal Yehoshua Koren, and three others were injured when the bomb exploded, burning the car and sending shrapnel flying. The terrorists sped off after the blast on their motorcycle, Indian police have said.
