Blast outside the Indian Embassy in Kabul

A powerful bomb blast outside the gates of the Indian embassy in Kabul led to the death of 44 people which included senior diplomat V Venkateshwara Rao - a 1990 batch IFS officer and the Indian Defense attack academy, Brig R D Mehta. They were entering the embassy gates in the car which was rammed into by the suicide bomber's Toyota Corolla packed with explosives.

Taliban has denied any role in the bombing which saw several world leaders condemn the dastardly attack. The Afghan authorities and intelligence officials in India have indicated that the ISI, Pakistan's spy agency, may be involved in the blast.
