The missile was tested from a pontoon, does that mean the underwater missile was successfully tested from above water????!!!!

yes the "pontoon" officially means above water.. floating ..
but these days according to english grammar it can mean anything..
you just cannot say anything abut Indian news media..

Besides B05 is a modification of AGNI I which has been in series of tests during 2012..
