Washington: The US Secret Service has recovered a "device" from the grounds of the White House, a spokesman said on Monday, adding that it did not appear to pose an "ongoing threat".

"There is a device that has been recovered by the Secret Service at the White House," said spokesman Josh Earnest, who is in New Delhi with the president.

"Early indication is that it does not pose any sort of ongoing threat to anybody right now at the White House."

US President Barack Obama, who was invited to India to attend the country's Republic Day Parade as the Chief Guest, for the first time spent two hours outdoors.  The President's outdoor exposure is normally limited to a maximum of 45 minutes.

For President Obama, the capital city of Delhi has turned into a fortress with extreme security measures in place.
