NEW DELHI: An Indian news report says India has successfully tested a medium-range, nuclear-capable ballistic missile fired from an underwater platform in the Bay of Bengal.

The Press Trust of India news agency says the missile would soon be ready for deployment on platforms, including a nuclear submarine.

India’s Defense Ministry spokesman was not available for comment.

Pallava Bagla, an Indian defense expert, said Sunday’s test off the east coast was 14th in the series with a range of 700 kilometers. It would complete India’s nuclear triad – the capability to launch missiles from land, air and below the sea.
