New Delhi: The Delhi Police Special Cell has arrested four students from Ladakh in connection with the Israel embassy blast case here, sources said on Thursday.
According to sources, the students were brought on transit remand to Delhi from Kargil, and after several rounds of questioning, they have been put under arrest.
The source, however, refused to share the details of the students who have been arrested.
On January 29, a minor IED blast took place outside the Embassy of Israel in the heart of Lutyens’ Delhi, less than 2 km from the Vijay Chowk, where the Beating Retreat ceremony was on. The Beating Retreat ceremony was attended by President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other dignitaries.
Some cars were damaged in the explosion that occurred about 150 metres away from the embassy on the Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Road in the very high-security Lutyens’ bungalow zone.
The Special Cell had registered a case following the blast. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) had taken over the case on February 2 this year.
On June 15, the NIA had announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh each for any information on the two suspects involved in the bomb blast. It had also issued the photographs and videos of the alleged suspects seen in the CCTV video footage captured outside the embassy.
Delhi Police Additional PRO Anil Mittal had said that it could be a mischievous attempt to create a sensation.
