New Delhi: Interpol has issued Red Corner notices against four Iranians suspected to be behind February 13 bomb attack on an Israeli diplomat’s car in the national capital.
Details of the suspects Mohammadreza Abolghashemi, Houshang Afshar Irani, Seyed Ali Mahdiansadr and Masoud Sedaghatzadeh who are all wanted for terrorism related offences including criminal conspiracy and attempted murder, have been transmitted to INTERPOL’s 190 member countries.
Interpol Secretary General Ronald K Noble said India’s request for the Red Notices would make it extremely difficult for the suspects to travel internationally in an attempt to evade capture.
“Through requesting Interpol Red Notices, India has ensured that law enforcement officials around the globe are alerted to the wanted status of these fugitives, and therefore reduces their options for international travel,” said Noble.
On Feb 13, four people were injured when an Israeli embassy car was struck by a bomb near the Israeli embassy in New Delhi.
Tal Yehoshua Koren, wife of the Israeli defence attache, suffered multiple injuries when a motorcycle rider attached a magnetic explosive device to her car and sped away. Within seconds, the device exploded with a thunderous sound, setting the car on fire.
