Mossad chief Tamir Pardo visited India last week, discussing with Delhi Police the threat of revenge strikes against Israelis, but not anticipating that such a strike would occur in India, The Times of India reported Thursday.

The visit of "a high level team" came just days before an Israeli diplomat's wife was injured when a terrorist on a motorcycle attached a magnetic bomb to her vehicle. Israel has blamed Iran and its proxy Hezbollah of carrying out the attack, a charge Tehran has denied. Additional botched terror attacks occurred on the same day in Tblisi, Georgia and the following day in Bangkok.
