Police said no-one was hurt in the attack, which came as diplomats from the two countries sought to defuse the row over the arrest and subsequent strip-search of Devyani Khobragade in a visa fraud case.

The Republican Party of India, which carried out the attack, sent pictures to media organisations showing a broken glass door at the outlet. The party said it wanted the United States to drop charges against the Indian diplomat.
