Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday congratulated the defence scientists for successfully testing the interceptor missile and said that it was a proud moment for the entire country.

India on Wednesday successfully test fired the Advanced Air Defence (AAD) Missile, the second level of two-tier interceptor missile system that can destroy hostile ballistic missiles.

The latest test comes less than a month after India successfully tested the Prithvi Defence Vehicle (PDV) interceptor missile on February 11.
