NEW DELHI/JERUSALEM (Reuters) – A small blast near the Israeli embassy in New Delhi on Friday was caused by a 'very low intensity improvised device' a police spokesman said, adding that there were no injuries.

The explosion damaged the window panes of five nearby parked cars, a Delhi police spokesman said in a statement.

“Initial impressions suggest a mischievous attempt to create a sensation,” the statement said.

“An explosion occurred recently near the Israeli embassy in India. There were no casualties in the blast, and no damage to the building,” Israel’s foreign ministry said in a statement. “The incident is under investigation by the authorities in India, who are in contact with the relevant Israeli authorities.”

The blast occurred shortly after 1700 IST (1130 GMT), while India’s President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were participating in a military ceremony a kilometer away from the site. A Reuters eyewitness said the site of the blast was quickly cordoned off by police.
