Delhi Police's hope of making a breakthrough into Monday's attack on the wife of an Israeli diplomat has hit a roadblock.
Hot on the trail of an abandoned motorcycle in Lado Sarai, the police traced its present owner Sanjiv alias Lucky only to find that the bike was stolen from F-block area in Saket on Tuesday.
Sanjiv lives in Dakshinpuri and runs a dance school in Saket. He told the police that he had parked the motorcycle outside his dance school before leaving for Ludhiana. The unattended motorcycle was discovered near a DDA Park in Lado Sarai on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the police's special cell is probing whether Hezbollah used local terror groups to carry out the attack. The possibility of Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) being tapped by the Hezbollah is being looked at, sources said.
Investigators are also collecting data about similar attacks that have taken place in the last 10 years across the world. Though they are carrying out dump data analysis of the calls, both originating outside and inside the country, investigators said nothing suspicious has been found yet.
Sources also said that Israeli officials in their meetings with Delhi police have constantly pointed fingers at Iran but have not been able to share specific inputs.
