While some media agencies confirmed the test of the sub-sonic cruise Nirbhay missile from Integrated Test Range (ITR) yesterday but missing was an official press release from the Defence Research and Development Organisation and the same was also not done by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) leading to speculations if the trials did take place or it was a failure or it was just unconfirmed reports.
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik later in the day from his Twitter account congratulated DRDO for the successful test of the sub-sonic cruise Nirbhay missile but still, confusion remained about what happened and why DRDO chose to remain mum on this development.
Nirbhay missile program has a troubled past that saw many trials that were declared failures, including the last missile trial that happened last year. Since this is a developing story , more details will be updated.
