NEW DELHI: The CBI will soon approach Interpol Headquarters for issuing of look-out notices against three Iranian nationals who are suspected to behind the bomb attack on an Israeli diplomat here last month.

The CBI, which serves as the nodal organisation in the country dealing with Interpol matters, will send the request by tomorrow to its international headquarters, agency sources said.

They said the agency is in final stages of processing the request of the Delhi Police for issuing of the highest-level look-out notice -- Red Corner Notice -- against Houshang Afshar Irani, Syed Ali Mahdiansadr and Mohammadreza Abolghasemi, believed to be behind the attack.

City Police Commissioner B K Gupta had claimed that the Iranians had allegedly conducted reconnaissance of the Israeli embassy earlier with the help of an Indian journalist Syed Ahemed Kazmi who was arrested on March six.

The police had claimed that the module, which attacked the Israeli embassy car on February 13 on Aurangazeb road, injuring a mission employee and three others, had recceed the mission office way back in May last year before returning to check again in January and February.

Investigators said they tracked Kazmi after the arrest of Masoud Sedaghatzadeh, the operational head of the module which carried out the attack in Bangkok in Malaysia.

According to police sources, Sedaghatzadeh was in touch with Irani and technical surveillance of Irani led to his alleged links with Kazmi. Irani, after his visit to Delhi in February, fled to Malaysia before the attack, they said.
