The Delhi police, which was looking for the red bike used in the Delhi car blast on Monday, has located it in Lado Sarai.

However, the police are still verifying the find. 

Based on the footage available from a CCTV camera and eyewitness accounts, the police managed to get some clues regarding the motorbike. It was also found that a man on a motorbike was tailing the Israel embassy car before sticking the bomb -- attached to magnetic strips – to the car. 

The police, however, are still tightlipped about the module involved in the blast and said that only further investigations would reveal more details.

The bomb composition is also being examined and preliminary reports show the presence of magnetic pieces and also sulphur. The bomb was packed tightly and was small in size so that it could be attached easily on to a moving vehicle. Moreover, it was triggered with the help of a cell phone, preliminary investigations show.
