New Delhi: Delhi Police are contemplating enhancing the security of some VIPs who are not accompanied by escort vehicles while travelling.

Sources said the move comes against the backdrop of a motorcyclist sticking a bomb on the car of an Israeli Embassy official which exploded here yesterday.

"We are planning to provide escort vehicles to some VIPs who are not entitled to escort vehicles. We are evaluating the situation," they said.

Police also plan to ensure that signals turn green when VIPs like ministers approach traffic islands in the city.

Yesterday's attack took place at a traffic signal on Aurangazed Road near the Prime Minister's residence when the targeted vehicle was waiting for the signal.
