An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Lakshya of the Indian Air Force crashlanded in Odisha's Balasore district this morning during a trial.

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

No injuries or casualties were reported from the incident. 

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