Kazmi, in his early 50s, was arrested Tuesday night from south Delhi. He
will be produced in the Tis Hazari court Wednesday afternoon," a police
official said.

Delhi Police said it has "almost cracked the
case". Four people were injured when an Israeli diplomat's car was hit by
a bomb near the Israeli embassy in the capital Feb 13.

Yehoshua Koren, wife of the Israeli defence attache, suffered multiple
injuries when a motorcycle rider attached a magnetic explosive device to
her car and sped away. Within seconds, the device exploded with a
thunderous sound, setting the car on fire.

Koren moved back to
Israel after getting treatment at a private south Delhi hospital. Three
others injured were discharged after being given medical attention.
