A senior Home Ministry official said, “We welcome all possible help extended by Israel to solve the case, but it cannot be a part of the investigation in India.” Meanwhile, Union Home Secretary R K Singh had said there was no evidence till now to suggest involvement of any country in the bomb attack.

As investigators try hard to find clues, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram held a review meeting with Home Secretary RK Singh, Special Secretary Internal Security Ajay Chadha, National Security Advisor Shiv Shankar Menon, Intelligence Bureau chief N Sandhu and other senior MHA officials.

Notably, the security agencies have not ruled out the involvement of a foreigner in the blast. And in order to get a clearer picture regarding this, the investigating agencies have already begun questioning foreigners who have come to India in the past one month.

Also, the investigating agency is of the view that the ‘magnet bomb’ which was used in the blast was brought to India from abroad.

An official said, “It was a hi-tech bomb which doesn’t require a battery or circuit to be used. It has no trace of RDX either.”

Meanwhile, India has cleared that no information was given to them by Israel about any possible attack. “After the terror attack, Israel has given us few names who can possibly be involved in the blast,” officials said.
