Lakshya UAV crash lands in Odisha

Bhubaneswar, April 21

An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Lakshya of the Indian Air Force crashlanded in Odisha’s Balasore district on Friday.

The UAV crashlanded in an agricultural field at Chandamuhi village in Baliapal block.

“There may be some technical reason behind the accident. A team of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) rushed to the spot. There was no loss of life and property,” said Balasore Superintendent of Police (SP) Niti Shekhar.

DRDO sources said a technical glitch might have scuttled the flight of Lakshya and brought it down to the ground.

According to locals, they heard a loud noise while working in the fields. Later, they found the aircraft in a field.
