India's hopes for its Vikram lunar lander to make a soft landing on the moon were all but dashed when ground control lost the craft's signal.

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi told scientists he was "immensely proud" of their unsuccessful attempt to complete the country's first soft moon landing.

It's not known if the unmanned lunar lander crashed or suffered a technical fault.

Al Jazeera's Anchal Vohra reports from New Delhi, India.
