Pokhran nuclear tests were a series of five nuclear bomb test explosions conducted at the Indian Army's Pokhran Test Range. On May 11, 1998, India successfully fired Operation Shakti missile in Rajasthan, the first among the five nuclear tests in Pokhran. The test was led by aerospace engineer and late Indian President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. Following which, Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared India a nuclear state.
