A court here on Monday issued open warrants against three Iranian nationals who Delhi police allege were involved in the February 13 bombing of an Israeli diplomat's car.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav issued the open warrant on the application moved by the Special Cell of Delhi Police. The Special Cell told the court that the trio had left the country immediately after the blast but their whereabouts were yet to be ascertained.

An open warrant will allow authorities to proceed legally against the three men when they are apprehended.

Application rejected

Meanwhile, the court rejected freelance journalist Syed Mohammed Ahmad Kazmi's application seeking copies of documents and evidence based on which his arrest had been made, pointing out that the matter was still in the investigation stage.
