India Monday testfired two nuclear capable short range ballistic missiles Prithvi 2 from Chandipur in the eastern Indian state of Orissa's Balasore district, Defense Ministry sources said.

The second missile was fired five minutes after the first was fired, said the sources.

The highly sophisticated surface-to-surface Prithvi 2 missile has a range of 350 km and is a tactical ballistic missile developed by India's Defense Research and Development Organization under the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program.
