New Delhi, Feb 14: Union Home Minister, P Chidambaram on Tuesday, Feb 14 issued official statement saying that special cell of Delhi police has been investigating CCTV footage to track the main culprit behind the bomb blast that rocked Delhi on Monday.

A motorcycle bike rider allegedly attached a device to the rear of the Innova car belonged to Israeli embassy. Chidambaram, while stating about the incident, said, "One person riding a motorcyle attached the device to the car and it is quite clear that a very well-trained person committed the crime."

The home minister once again confirmed that it was a terror attack targeting the Israeli woman, the wife of an Israeli diplomat. However, Chidambaram also has been quoted as saying, "At the moment I am not pointing finger at any person or group."

"We condemn the attack. We have friendly relations with all countries. Diplomats are entitled to work in peace in India," added Chidambaram while addressing the media on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, sources informed that the Israeli Embassy car blast could have been triggered by a remote control. According to sources, since a magnetic device was struck to the car, it couldn't have been the handiwork of a timer.

The 40-year-old Israeli woman, who has been identified as Tal Yehoshua is now understood to be critical. She had sustained injuries in the car explosion. The diplomat underwent two surgeries on Monday night and her condition is "critical but stable".

Here it can be mentioned that Georgian police have already arrested two persons and started investigating them as the news of explosion in Delhi came with another report of similar nature in Tbilisi, capital of Georgia. However, the explosion was being averted.

Citing the quick action of the Georgian police, many started criticising Indian system and especially the home ministry who after almost 24 hours of the incident, have not yet identified the single attacker who was in a bike.
