Israel is treating a small bomb blast near the Israeli embassy in New Delhi on Friday, which did not injure anyone, as a terrorist incident, an Israeli official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
New Delhi police said there had been no injuries and no damage to the building, adding: "Initial impressions suggest a mischievous attempt to create a sensation."
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.
India's foreign minister S Jaishankar said on Friday that he had spoken to his counterpart Gabi Ashkenazi about a blast outside the Israeli embassy in New Delhi.
