With the initial investigations in the blast near Israeli Embassy leading to Iranian link, the government is set to hand over the probe to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Delhi Police sources say explosives and other materials used in the low-intensity IED were locally sourced.

They say the police with the help of central agencies, including IB and immigration authorities, are trying to locate the Iranian nationals who have come to India in the past one month.

Sources say Union Home Minister Amit Shah has cancelled his  two-day visit to West Bengal.

Police sources say the envelope that was found at the blast site has revealed the Iranian connection to the blast, as it claimed it was a trailer and their target is Israeli installations in India.

Sources also confirm that security has been beefed up at all places across the country having Israeli links.
