Scorpene submarine data leaked

Australian media reported that sensitive data concerning India’s Scorpene Submarine has been leaked, posing serious threat to the Indian Navy’s stealth weapons. The data, reportedly running into over 22, 000 pages, has been marked ‘Restricted Scorpene India’. The Indian Express has not accessed the data. The documents ­belong to DCNS – the company that is building India’s Scorpene Submarines. It could well provide an ­intelligence landmine if obtained by India’s neighbours – Pakistan or China. First of the Scorpene class submarines being built in India – Kalvari – went for sea trials in May, 2016 and is expected to be inducted in the Indian Navy soon. Indian Navy officials have said the six submarines, once inducted, would form the core of the Navy’s submarine arm for the next two decades.
