The car bomb which exploded in India on Monday, injuring the wife of an Israeli diplomat, was a magnetic device attached to the car by motorcycle and possibly detonated by remote control device, according to police accounts given to The Times of India.

Quoting New Delhi Police Commissioner B K Gupta on Monday, The Times of India wrote “a magnetic device was stuck on the rear of the car near Aurangzeb Road crossing by a persib riding a motorcycle, following which a minor blast took place after the car moved a few metres and then it caught fire.”

This is similar to accounts given by Iranian news agencies last month, regarding the assassination of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, an Iranian nuclear scientist.

“Iranian news accounts said the suspected assassin had attached a magnetized explosive device to the scientist’s car and escaped during the rush hour in northern Tehran,” the New York Times reported on January 11th.

Referring to Mondays attack in India and Georgia, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said “Iran is behind these attacks; it is the largest exporter of terrorism in the world.”
