New Delhi, Jan 29 (UNI) A low intensity blast occurred near the Israel embassy at APJ Abdul Kalam road here on Friday.

No casualty or injury was reported. Windscreens of three to four vehicles were damaged, the Police said.

Teams of special cell, bomb disposal squad and forensic have reached the spot, they said.

The blast occurred near Jindal House, which is just about 1.5-km-away from Vijay Chowk where the Beating Retreat ceremony was underway. Notably, the blast site lies under a high security zone and not far away from the 7 Lok Kalyan Marg, the official residence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
