The Delhi Police are seeking Interpol’s help in getting Masoud Sedaghatzadeh, the alleged main conspirator in Delhi bombing on Israeli envoy’s car last month, extradited to the country.
Mr. Sedaghatzadeh is currently in the custody of Malaysian police.
Sources said investigators have initiated the process of getting Mr. Sedaghatzadeh, the head of the module which triggered an explosion in Bangkok and believed to have guided the bombers in Delhi, extradited.
The police are approaching the Central Bureau of Investigation to seek Interpol help in connection with securing the custody of Mr. Sedaghatzadeh.
According to police, Houshang Afshar Irani, alleged bomber who targeted the Israeli embassy car on February 13, 2012 was in touch with Mr. Sedaghatzadeh.
The police claimed it managed to unravel the conspiracy related to the February 13, 2012 car bomb attack on Aurangazeb Road in which an Israeli diplomat and three others were injured, after finding out that Mr. Sedaghatzadeh was in touch with Mr. Irani.
Sources said technical surveillance and checking of his call records allegedly pointed out the involvement of an Indian journalist Syed Mohd Ahmad Kazmi (50), who was arrested on March 6, 2012.
Delhi Police had on Friday initiated the process of securing an Interpol Red Corner notice against three Iranians — Mr. Irani, Syed Ali Mahdiansadr and Mohammadreza Abolghasemi — suspected of carrying out the bomb attack.
Investigators claimed that they tracked Mr. Kazmi after finding his links with one of the Iranians who was in touch with the head of the module which carried out the attack in Bangkok.
They also said the module had recceed the mission office way back in May last year before returning to check again in January and February.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav issued the warrant against Mr. Sedaghatzadeh after Special Cell of Delhi Police said he was also involved in the conspiracy of the blast.
