Police say the two men are also wanted in connection with a similar series of blasts in the city of Ahmadabad in July.

Responsibility for the attacks in both Ahmadabad and Delhi was claimed by a suspected militant group called the Indian Mujahideen.

The recent attacks have reignited debate in India about the ability of the security and intelligence forces to prevent such attacks and bring those responsible to justice.

However it has also sparked outrage from some of the members of the Muslim community who say the police are persecuting innocent Muslim youths and harassing them.
