New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Wednesday told a court here that the conspiracy of Israeli diplomat car bombing case was hatched outside India and the possibility of foreign hands in it cannot be ruled out.
The Special Cell of Delhi police disclosed it before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Vinod Yadav who remanded Syed Mohammed Ahmad Kazmi, arrested for his alleged role in the February 13 car bombing case, to police custody till March 27.
"He (Kazmi) is one of the conspirators of this wider conspiracy. This is a case of international terrorism.
It is not necessary that only Indians are involved in this case and there is a possibility that some foreign nationals might be involved in the case," said public prosecutor Rajiv Mohan.
He said the conspiracy was hatched outside India but refused to elaborate upon it in the open court saying the main accused, who is yet to be arrested, could take benefits of it if the facts are revealed at this stage.
"We have already recorded statement of the eyewitnesses of the incident. The conspiracy was hatched outside India, We do not want to disclose all the information in the open court as the main accused, who is yet to be arrested, could go out of the reach of the probe agency," the prosecutor said.
Seeking 20 days remand for Kazmi for his custodial interrogation, Mohan said the IED was used for the explosion and everything was done in a well-planned manner.
"IED was planted for the explosion and this was not an accidental act. Everything was carried out in a well-planned way. We need 20 days` police custody of the accused to unearth the entire conspiracy. The investigation is going on and some more accused are yet to be arrested," he said.
