India: Biker sought in bomb attack

2012-02-14 12:02

New Delhi - Indian police were on Tuesday trying to track a motorcyclist in connection with a car bomb blast that seriously injured an Israeli diplomat's wife.

The police were examining closed circuit television footage from private residences and government buildings in the area to trace the biker's route, federal Home Minister P Chidambaram said.

Tal Yehoshua Koren, the wife of an Israeli Defence Ministry representative, suffered shrapnel injuries in Monday's attack at a traffic light in central Delhi.

The driver of her car and two men in the car behind also suffered minor injuries.

According to a witness, a motorcyclist attached a device to Koren's car and the blast took place seconds later.

"A very well-trained person has carried out this attack," Chidambaram said.

No image of biker

"At the moment we are not pointing a finger at any group or organisation," he added.

Israel has blamed Iran, which dismissed the accusation.

The video footage had not revealed any image of the biker, Chidambaram said.

Surgeons had removed most of the shrapnel from Koren's body, including her spinal cord, said Arun Bhanot, a surgeon at the Primus Super Speciality Hospital.

"She is stable and responding. She should start improving in a few days," Bhanot said.

Two of the four others injured had been discharged from hospital, Chidambaram said.

A team of investigators from Israel was en route to India, NDTV news channel reported citing diplomatic sources.

      Fidel are full of hatred. You like to offend and hurt people and make them angry. You must be bery ugly inside, very unhappy and angry, so I feel sorry for you. You are pathetic. However, you are also a Jew hater, a racist and a bigot, and you should be condemned for that.

      Poor BA, man up you bastardo!

      Anthony - 2012-02-14 21:03

      " Bastardo " !!!!!!!!! is this part of your Fidel immage???? You are an extreme radical, but you don't also have to become silly !!!!!

      Fidel - 2012-02-14 21:16

      Conservative sentimentalisation of history will always stir up fear in right-wing nutters. Goog night!

      Anthony - 2012-02-14 21:39

      Fidel is a Gaddafi and Castro lover (hence "Bastardo"), totally delusional and upside down on everything. If you want a point of reference on what not to think, Fidel is your man.

    You guys love it when an innocent woman is unjured, but where are your comments about that clown of an iranian who blew his own legs off? You are pathetic and disgusting human beings. Those who understand the aggressive, violent imperialist tendencies of a radical islamist iran do not celebrate like you. We face the iranian threat and the terrible results with sadness. It is only people like you who think death or injury is a cause for celebration. The value of life: Jews 1 - Islamists: 1000.

      Patrick is also a Gaddafi lover, an anti-semite and liar. Like Fidel, if you want to know what not to think, reading his ideas will help create this contrast.

    The problem with fido and merde is their youth. Youth, bereft of knowledge and experience, filled with ideologies and anti-capitalist rhetoric, once the fashion of Europe and South America, dreaming of their heroes of the revolution. Che wannabees each and every one. But their enemy, as always, are their one-eyed views. They search the waves for anti-capitalist rhetoric to spout as if from their own minds, forgetting, that everything written has been read by others too! Look at the facts and answer objectively. Wait for the signatures of the explosives and wait for the failure of your beloved, backward Iran.

      Anthony - 2012-02-14 22:01

      @Patrick The only thing Fidel understands as being "legal" is these assads thugs mowing down unarmed protesters.

    When we were against Aparthied, we were NOT anti White. One cannot equate White and Apartheid to be one and the same......hell so many of the the comrades who gave their lives fighting against apartheid were white! In the same breath, we must not conclude that if somebody speaks out against Zionism tha they are automatically anti Jewish or anti Semetic. There are many Jews are who are against Zionism and amongst them many great thinkers. Albert Einstein was offered the Presidency of Israel but turned it down as he was against Zionism. Can we now call Einstein an Anti-Semite? And whoever attached this lady in India or killed Iranain scientists with these ''motorcyle bombs'' is wrong.....we cannot decide right from worng based on who is doing the bombing.....
