New Delhi, Feb 15 (IANS) In the wake of the terror attack on an Israeli embassy car, India has agreed to provide Israel with extra security for its mission and personnel.

The Israelis asked for enhanced security for its mission and diplomats in the aftermath of Monday’s attack in which the wife of an Israeli diplomat was among four people injured.

“India has agreed to provide more security. Indian security agencies are working with the Israeli side to provide additional layers of security it needs,” official sources said here Wednesday.

The Delhi Police is understood to have tightened the security for the Israeli embassy staff in Delhi.

Investigators Wednesday began examining records of 115 phone calls made to Iran, Israel and Lebanon from here for clues in the Monday bomb attack on an Israeli embassy vehicle in the heart of the capital.

An unidentified motorcyclist attached an improvised explosive magnetic device to the Israeli embassy car, injuring four people, including the wife of a diplomat.

Israel has blamed Iran for the attack. Iran had rejected the charges as “empty lies.”
