Test Launch of India’s Subsonic 'Nirbhay' Cruise Missile Aborted in Eight Minutes: Here’s Why

India has been fast-tracking development and deployment of modern weapons amid the ongoing border tensions with China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh. A total of 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a brutal face-off with Chinese soldiers in mid-June.

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) test fired the “Nirbhay” missile at 10:30 AM (IST) into the Bay of Bengal on Monday from a test facility in the Indian state of Odisha. However, just eight minutes later, the trial was aborted.

This is the fourth time since 2013 that a trial launch of Nirbhay cruise missile has been stopped mid-way.
