‘BrahMos Missile Misfiring Into Pakistan Cost India Rs 240 Million’

Hindustan Times reported that the misfiring of a BrahMos missile into Pakistan last year cost India Rs 240 million.

The Indian government reportedly informed the Delhi high court that the accidental firing of a BrahMos combat missile into Pakistan last year cost the state exchequer Rs 240 million. On Monday, it also justified the decision of dismissing three Indian Air Force (IAF) officers for gross negligence, Hindustan Times reported. 

The government has filed an affidavit regarding Wing Commander Abhinav Sharma’s removal from the Indian Air Force as a result of the error. Sharma was one of three IAF officers that were fired. 

The centre said that the firing harmed the country’s ties with its neighbour. Earlier this year in March, the Union government told the Delhi high court that the misfired BrahMos combat missile could have led to a warlike situation between the two countries. 

As quoted by the report, the Union government said, “Considering the sensitive nature of the subject matter having widespread ramifications for the security of the State, a conscious and considered decision was taken in good faith to terminate the service of the petitioner under the President’s pleasure clause.”

“Such a decision has been taken in the Indian Air Force after 23 years as facts and circumstances of the case warranted such action,” it added. 

The report mentioned that, in the affidavit, the Centre said that the trial of three officers by a court martial was “inexpedient”. 

It further added “the international community was interested to know the important practical details regarding the firing of missile”. 

As quoted by the report, the Union government said: “Considering the sensitive nature of the subject matter having widespread ramifications for the security of the State, a conscious and considered decision was taken in good faith to terminate the service of the petitioner under the President’s pleasure clause. Such a decision has been taken in the Indian Air Force after 23 years as facts and circumstances of the case warranted such action.” 

Wing Commander Sharma, the petitioner, challenged the termination order issued against him under Section 18 of the Air Force Act of 1950. He was assigned as an engineering officer when the incident occurred.
