By NewsGram Staff Writer

India’s Ballistic Missile Interceptor failed tests on Monday. The missile was not able to reach its target.

“It took off as planned but it did not reach the target. We are analyzing the data,” test range director M.V.K.V. Prasad.

The indigenous Advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile was fired from Wheeler Island off the coast in Odisha’s Bhadrak district. About 170 km from there, the missile dropped straight into the Bay of Bengal, seconds after the liftoff.
