Agni-V project director moved out

NEW DELHI (TIP): The project director of the nuclear-capable Agni-V missile, RK Gupta, has been relieved of his charge at a time the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is in the midst of a major shake-up. Gupta received the order on February 2, two days after the first successful canister launch of the 5,000-km range missile.

Former DRDO chief Avinash Chander had signed the order days before the government cut short his tenure on January 13 as it wanted someone younger to man the key post.
