The incident happened 13 minutes after the lander of the Chandrayaan 2 began it’s descent on the surface. The lander had reduced its velocity of 1.6 km/sec to half within the first 7 minutes and had come down to an altitude of 7 km.

ISRO chief Kailasavavadivoo Sivan confirmed the news and also added that the data from the lander has been analyzed and that the bump will not end in the failure of the Chandrayaan 2 mission.
