India on Tuesday test-fired its indigenously developed short range nuclear capable Agni-I (A) ballistic missile from Abdul Kalam Island off Odisha coast. 

The test was conducted by the Strategic Force Command of the Indian Army at 8:30 am today.

It was 18th version of Agni-I, which could achieve all parameters within the stipulated time period, said defence sources.

The 15-metre-long Agni-I weighing 12 tonne can carry payloads up to 1,000 kg.
