NEW DELHI: India today asked its embassy in Thailand to ascertain details on the detention of two Indians by Thai police for questioning in connection with the August 17 bomb blast at the Brahma shrine there in which 20 people were killed and more than 100 injured.

The Indians, who were not identified, have been taken to a military camp for questioning by Thai police after they were seen on CCTVs talking to a foreign suspect wanted in Thailand's deadliest bombing, The Nation quoted police as saying.

According to official sources, the External Affairs Ministry has asked its embassy to file a detailed report in the matter. "We have seen reports on two Indian nationals detained for questioning in connection with the Erawan bomb blast. We have asked for a detailed report from our embassy there in this regard," a source said.

A foreigner who lived at the room and a Thai woman who rented the room for him are now wanted in the case.
