"Incident happened outside the building and has nothing to do with ISRO. No damage to life and property," the PRO was quoted as saying by ANI. 

There is little information available on the explosion and the nature of it is still unknown. 

The ISRO Propulsion Complex is located near Kanyakumari at Mahendragiri Hills, Tirunelveli District in Tamil Nadu.
