- Pakistan tweeted video of test launch of Babur missile on Monday
- No missile test off Pakistan coast yesterday: Indian Navy sources to NDTV
- The video may have older footage, sources say
The video showed the missile exiting the water after apparently being launched from a submarine, cruising towards and then striking its target.
Oddly, two missiles, not one, are seen in the video; one missile that emerges from the water is grey and another shown in a subsequent shot is orange.
Sources in the Indian Navy, which monitors such activity, have confirmed to NDTV that there was no missile test off the coast of Pakistan yesterday.
The video may have older footage, they say.
On Monday, Pakistan claimed its "first successful test of the Babur missile" implying that it has completed its nuclear triad since it already has land-based ballistic missiles as well as tactical nuclear bombs that it can drop from its fighter aircraft.
The Babur has a range of at least 450 km.
Pakistan's military media wing was quoted by Reuters as saying: "Pakistan eyes this hallmark development as a step towards reinforcing the policy of credible minimum deterrence."
