New Delhi: India on Friday successfully test-fired the K-4 submarine-launched ballistic missile off the coast of Visakhapatnam for the second time this week, seen as a major milestone to augment India’s naval prowess.

The missile, developed by the DRDO, with its range of 3,500 km can bring almost all parts of Pakistan and several areas of China within its reach, officials said.

The missile is set to be integrated with India’s Arihant class nuclear submarine.

The missile was test-fired successfully for the second consecutive time in the last five days off the coast of Visakhapatnam, the officials said.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. That picture is definitely not the INS Arihant. Looks like an Astute class submarine of the Royal Navy. Please get your facts right, such shoddy work should be a cause for embarrassment to any journal.
