HackerRank Minimum Distance problem solution

In this HackerRank Minimum Distance problem you have Given a, find the minimum distance between any pair of equal elements in the array. If no such value exists, return -1.

Problem solution in Python programming.

```class Solution:
def __init__(self):
self.size = int(input())
self.array1 = get_int_list(input())

def calculate(self):
val_dict = {}
for i,val in enumerate(self.array1):
if val in val_dict:
val_dict[val].append(i)
else:
val_dict[val]=[i]
min_val = None
for indices in val_dict.values():
if len(indices) > 1:
for i in range(0,len(indices)-1):
if min_val is None or (indices[i+1]-indices[i]) < min_val:
min_val = indices[i+1]-indices[i]
if min_val is None:
return -1
else:
return min_val
