In the aftermath of a low-intensity blast near the Israeli embassy in Delhi, the police have initiated an FIR against "unknown" individuals.
The FIR, filed under relevant sections of the Explosive Substances Act and the Indian Penal Code, stems from a complaint lodged by a police officer.
The blast, occurring between the boundary walls of a house and the Central Hindi Training Institute, raised concerns as it took place near the Israeli embassy.
While no injuries were reported, an "abusive" letter addressed to the Israeli Ambassador was discovered at the blast site.
The one-page letter, written in English, is suspected to be linked to an organisation called Sir Allah Resistance and contains references to "Zionists," "Palestine," and "Gaza."
Delhi Police, investigating the case, are considering transferring it to the Special Cell to unravel any deeper conspiracy.
Meanwhile, surveillance footage from multiple CCTV cameras near the blast site revealed a suspect arriving from Jamia Nagar in an autorickshaw.
Despite questioning autorickshaw drivers, including the one who transported the suspect, the accused remains at large.
While police recovered a broken watch dial and steel bearings from the blast site, the National Security Guard's laboratory is analysing samples collected from the spot to identify the components used.
As the investigation unfolds, police have recorded statements from witnesses who heard the blast, with some mentioning a vehicle breaking down near the site.
