This was more of a failed test. Air launched and was going towards the designated test range when all of a sudden it changed its course. Lets not forget that Pakistan and India as per the signed treaty are supposed to inform the other country before Ballistic missile test, but no such treaty occurs for cruise missiles.
Secondly even Notam is not required within the countries on air space hence no notam was shared. Booster can also be seen attached with the projectile.

The Indian defence ministry regretted on Friday a missile that "accidentally" entered Pakistan and fell in Khanewal district's Mian Channu area on Wednesday, attributing the incident to a "technical malfunction".

"On 9 March 2022, in the course of routine maintenance, a technical malfunction led to the accidental firing of a missile," the ministry said in a statement. "It is learnt that the missile landed in an area of Pakistan."

"The government has taken serious view and ordered a high-level court of enquiry," the statement added.

The ministry said while the incident was "deeply regrettable, it is also a matter of relief that there has been no loss of life due to the accident".

If we had any sense, we'd be shouting from the rooftops questioning the security of India's nuclear arsenal.
Hi, who would bother? Do we have any allies?
In any case at the moment world is over occupied with Ukraine and Russia crisis.

Hopefully, after counting the dead crows, Pakistani leadership will not delay in launching operation retort 2.

and what did they get?

Most likely India is re-thing about there over dependency on Russian defense HW.
More so now with Russian crisis with west, there were constant discussions going on with western states.
Let's see how much Indian mange to squeez west for flipping sides.

It's the perfect time. There's already a WW3 and MAD scare. With India handling their strategic assets so childishly, it should be a piece of cake.

Innocent people on this thread are already denying any such exercise happened, I'm making them happy|0|.
In the mean time, everyone else is free to speculate as to what was gained, keeping in mind, that absence of a warhead does not mean zero payload.

Accident but at least it confirms all Indian missiles are pointing towards Pakistan and approximately in which direction Brahmos are pointing.

Moeed W. Yusuf

National Security Advisor to the Prime Minister, Pakistan

On March 9th, a supersonic projectile from India traveling at 40,000 feet covered over 250 km & landed inside Pakistani territory. It has taken more than 2 days for India to accept that this was their missile launched ostensibly due to a technical malfunction during maintenance.

This raises serious questions about India’s ability to handle such sensitive technology. This missile traveled close to the path of international and domestic commercial airlines and threatened the safety of civilians.

It is also highly irresponsible of Indian authorities not to have informed Pakistan immediately that an inadvertent launch of a cruise missile had taken place.

In a nuclear environment, such callousness & ineptitude raises questions about the safety & security of Indian weapon systems. Already, there have been multiple incidents of uranium theft in India and its citizens have even been arrested while smuggling uranium in the recent past

Remember, this is a state apparatus being run by a fascist ideology that has already proven its recklessness by trying to bomb Pakistan in 2019.
We have constantly called on the world to look at India’s irresponsible behavior that continues to pose a threat to regional stability. Our calls have been ignored.

Given this incident, and earlier ones, the world must consider whether India is able to ensure the safety and security of its nuclear and other high-end weapon systems.

It is hard to believe anything this Indian government says. Therefore, the real circumstances surrounding this incident must also be investigated to ascertain if this was an inadvertent launch or something more intentional.

Regardless, the world must remove its blinders about Indian state’s behavior within its country, its diplomatic direction, & its disregard for the need for peace & stability in its neighborhood. The world must treat this incident with the urgency, sensitivity & alarm it deserves.
