However, later it turned out that it was just the illumination of the sky from the recent night trials of inter continental ballistic missile (ICBM), Agni-V in the Bay of Bengal. India successfully conducted night trials of the Agni-V nuclear-capable ballistic missile on Thursday. The missile is capable of reaching targets beyond a range of 5000 kilometres and is critical to India’s self-defence capabilities.

Reports said the missile uses a three-stage solid-fuelled engine and is capable of striking targets at ranges up to 5,000 kilometres with a very high degree of accuracy. The missile test comes amid the escalated tension between India and China in the Tawang sector in Arunachal Pradesh.

“The test was carried out to validate new technologies and equipment on the missile which is now lighter than before. The trial has proved the capability to enhance the range of the Agni-5 missile, if required,” sources said. India launched the last Agni-5 test in October 2021.
