Ammonium nitrate was used to trigger the car explosion near Jama Masjid which took place just hours after an attack there on a vehicle carrying foreign tourists, the police said on Monday.

They said no RDX or detonator was used to carry out the explosion.

The explosion had taken place on Sunday, some 50m away from Gate No 3 of Jama Masjid and near a police station just hours after two Taiwanese nationals were shot and injured outside the mosque.

A top official said the probe into the explosion was handed over to the premier special cell of the Delhi police on Monday morning.

A case under the Explosives Act has been registered in the incident.

About the firing incident, he said a case under IPC Section 307 and the Arms Act has been registered and investigations are on.

Investigators have questioned about 30 people following Sunday's incidents.
