The packet, which had the sender’s name as LTTE from Italy, was received at the emba-ssy on January 20, Ambassador Arif Khan told PTI.
The envelope, addressed to the Embassy of India in Italy, contained two fuse wires, which aroused suspicion.

The police are investigating the incident, Khan said, adding security has been stepped up.
