"The original plan was to detonate all the three devices at 9 am but unfavourable wind direction delayed the whole event.
"And according to the protocols of international conventions, the wind direction should not be towards other countries or inhabited areas. All waited for almost six hours for the wind direction to change," said Manjit Singh, who was part of the team that conducted the tests, at a DRDO event.
The scientist recalled how the team did not want to wait in the control room of the tests anticipating that it would collapse due to the tremors caused by the explosion.
