Indian police arrested four students from the city of Cargill in the Kashmir region on suspicion of involvement in an explosion near the Israeli embassy in New Delhi on Jan. 29.

Local police had reportedly released security footage showing the suspects placing a small explosive device outside the embassy.

The blast, which occurred on the 29th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and Israel, shattered the windows of three parked cars. There were no injuries.

Israel and India had initially suspected that Iran was linked to the explosion.
