‘Potassium chlorate, nitrate found in blast material`
New Delhi: Investigators probing the
explosion of an Israeli diplomat`s car on Wednesday said preliminary
forensic examination of the blast material showed traces of
potassium chlorate and nitrate.
Officials monitoring the probe said that the quantity of
explosive material used in the probe was very less.
While forensic experts were battling with the explosive
material and its triggering mechanism, the officials said
despite the explosion, which shattered the window panes of
nearby bungalows, the metal of the vehicle was not ripped off.
According to the preliminary forensic report of the
Central Forensic Science Laboratory, traces of potassium
chlorate and nitrate have been found, the officials said.
They said the explosion was only able to create a loud
noise and dent the body of the SUV and not rip it off as
otherwise it could have been fatal.
The triggering mechanism was not clear as yet to the
experts, they added.
