Bhubaneswar, October 16
India’s indigenous surface-to-surface cruise missile Nirbhay nose-dived midway after it test fired in Odisha on Friday. Defence Research and Development Organisation sources said the missile was launched from the Chandipur Integrated Test Range in Balasore district at 11.38 am.
Although the takeoff was successful amid repeated disruptions of countdown, the missile missed the target after 11 minutes of launch. The missile had a range of 750-1,000 km. But it nose-dived after covering 128 km in the Bay of Bengal. — IANS
