    Terror group not identified, says Chidambaram

    New Delhi: Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday that there was still no evidence to link any terror group with the Delhi High Court blast in which nine people have been killed.

    "It is not possible to say who is behind the blast at this point. The Government condemns this terror blast. Delhi has been a target of the terrorists. The group has not been tracked. The objective of the terrorists is to destabilise the country," said Chidambaram while making a statement in the Lok Sabha on the terror strike.

    He said that the National Investigative Agency (NIA) will carry out the probe.

    Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader LK Advani said that terrorists have been targeting India with alarming regularity.

    "It saddens us to see such an incident in the capital of the country. We are also close to completing 10 years of 9/11 and we should understand the mentality and intention of the terrorists. We stand united to bring the guilty to book, to condole the loss of lives, we should adjourn Parliament," said Advani.

    At least 10 people have been killed and 65 others injured in a bomb blast outside the Delhi High Court on Wednesday morning. The terror strike took place outside Gate No. 5 of the Delhi High Court at 10:14 AM.

    The blast took place in a high security area with Parliament, the Prime Minister's Office and India Gate in the vicinity.
