Seismometers did not capture any ground vibration as generally happens during a mild tremor. The activity is purely a loud unknown noise.More importantly, no ground vibration was observed and hence no record by the seismometers installed by KSNDMC,” he said.

The PRO of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) maintained that the incident has nothing do with HAL tests.
