Starting from the launch to the first phase separation, everything was smooth in accordance with the mission plan but suddenly it started behaving abnormally.

Experts believe that the failure could be due to the metallurgical defects. Indian army had added Agni-III, which is capable of carrying both conventional and nuclear warheads, into its inventory in 2011.
