India Monday successfully test-fired its nuclear-capable surface-to-surface Prithvi-II missile from a military base in Odisha, a senior defence official said.


The indigenously-developed ballistic missile with a maximum range of 350 km was fired from the Integrated Test Range at Chandipur-on-sea in Balasore district, about 230 km from Bhubaneswar.

The test was a part of the regular training exercise by the Indian armed forces.

"The test was successful. It was a text book launch" test range director M.V.K.V. Prasad told IANS.
