Even as it probes the recent bombing of an Israeli diplomat’s car,the Special Cell of Delhi Police has asked the Israel Embassy to provide investigation reports on similar terror plots in Georgia and Thailand. Special Cell personnel have not received a formal copy of the report from police of the two countries,and they have not sent their report across either.

Police said reports from Georgia and Thailand will be crucial for connecting the dots and providing investigators with clues on those behind the attacks.

Travel details of people from three more countries,who entered India in the last three months,have also been sought by the Special Cell. Residents of Venezuela,Thailand and Georgia were being verified by the police through the Foreigners Regional Registration Office,sources said.

Meanwhile,police are awaiting a final report from the Central Forensic Science Laboratory on samples collected from the site of the explosion.

Preliminary findings indicate the use of more than two to three chemicals in accompaniment with potassium chlorate.

“Preliminary findings have revealed that it was a magnetic sheet that was stuck to the rear of the car. The impact of the explosion turned the brittle magnetic particles into powder. Trying to reassemble the magnet to its original form is next to impossible,” a police officer said.

Police said the Israeli authorities were yet to collect CCTV footage from them. “But around 7-8 Israel Embassy officials came to the Lodhi Colony Special Cell office and took photographs of the car and the spot. The final report will throw more light on the case,” a police officer said.

A news agency has reported that an Iranian terror cell in Thailand had hidden the bombs in portable radios.

It released the photograph of an alleged plotter carrying a radio that contained ball bearings and magnets.

The man lost a leg when a bomb he was carrying exploded.
