Jama Masjid shooting , Terror Attack in Delhi Before CWG

Raising security concerns ahead of the Commonwealth Games, two men on a motorbike fired several rounds on a tourist vehicle near the historic Jama Masjid in the walled city, injuring two Taiwanese nationals.

Two unidentified persons fired at the duo near gate number three of the historic mosque, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central) Jaspal Singh said.

The attackers fired at least 10 rounds at a group of tourists alighting from a luxury bus outside the mammoth 16th-century red sandstone mosque in the old quarters of the city.
The suspect hails from Vasant Kunj area of south Delhi. According to police, he was detained on suspicion by the Special Cell of the Crime Branch as the motorcycle, a black coloured Hero Honda Passion, used in the crime belonged to him.

He said the two injured persons, who were from Taiwan, have been taken to Lok Nayak Jaiprakash Narayan Hospital. "We are looking into the matter," he said.

The attack came despite a high level of security the authorities have declared here in the run up to the Commonwealth Games that will draw athletes and officials from 71 countries and territories. The Jama Masjid receives a large number of Indian and foreign tourists daily, the number going up on Sundays.

Taking note of the incident, red alerts have been issued in both Delhi and Mumbai.
