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.

According to the Times of India report, Pardo felt that Israelis in India were safer from possible revenge attacks than their counterparts in Turkey, southeast Asia and South America.
