(JTA) -- Police in New Delhi arrested a suspect in connection with a car bomb attack in the Indian city that injured the wife of an Israeli diplomat.
An Indian journalist, Syed Mohammed Kazmi, was arrested Tuesday, the Associated Press reported. A police investigation showed that he had been in contact with the man who police believe stuck a bomb on the car while riding by on a motorcycle and remains at large.
Police said Kazmi claims to work for an Iranian news agency and reportedly searched his house over two days, but they have not said what evidence was found.
