According to the Time of India, the investigation has concluded that the Iranian suspects “discussed the plan to attack the Israeli diplomats in India and other countries with Indian journalist Syed Mohammad Ahmad Kazmi in January.”

The investigation further found that Kazmi was in touch with the suspects and their Iranian handles for almost 10 years.

India has reportedly demanded that Iranshare details of the five terror suspects, including Houshang Afshar Irani, Sedaghatzadeh Masoud Syed Ali Mahdiansadr, Mohammad Reza Abolghasemi and Ali Akbar Norouzishayan.

According to the report, Masoud is also considered the mastermind behind the attacks on the Israeli missions in Georgia, Bangkok and New Delhi.
