Du Wenlong, a researcher at China's PLA Academy of Military Sciences, told the Global Times that the Agni-V "actually has the potential to reach targets 8,000 kilometers away". "The Indian government had deliberately downplayed the missile's capability in order to avoid causing concern to other countries," Du added.

range will probably depend on the ammount of fuel loaded into the missile so if you want a 5k max distance you just make the fuel tanks a %age smaller and technically theres nothing you can do since people will be able to measure tank capacity and work out distance and say its true but a small 'maintenance' refit could possibly easy add the required distance and who would really notice?
Maybe that is because the Indian government does not try to threaten other countries and rattle their sabres? Maybe they have no madman as a leader who hates the U.S. ?

They have nothing to gain by attacking India so they let them do what they want and make it look like nothing ever happened there!
But IRAN....wait, they are EVIL!
