A rocket-launched granade reportedly landed in the volleyball court at the Indian ambassador Manpreet Vohra's residence. The incident happened at about 11:15 AM. All are safe in the mission in Kabul. No report of any casualty so far, reported PTI.

This is the second blast near Indian Embassy after last week's Truck bomb blast in which over 100 people were killed in Kabul. Windows and doors of the Indian Embassy's building were partly damaged following the explosion.

Meanwhile, a Peace and Security conference  presided by President Ashraf Ghani is underway in Kabul.  The conference is being attended by the leaders of 27 nations and representatives of international organisations.
