Narrative:
Indian Air Force's (IAF's) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) crash landed today at Chandamuhi village under Baliapal block in Balasore district of Odisha.

Though the reason behind the crash is yet to be ascertained, sources said a technical glitch may have scuttled the flight of Lakshya and brought it down to the ground.

“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.
