Sensitive data related to India’s Scorpene submarines has been leaked, with French shipbuilder DCNS, which designed the submarine, facing a leak of documents spreading over 22,000 pages, a report in Australian media revealed on Tuesday.  The Indian Express, however, could not verify the same. Marked ‘Restricted Scorpene India’, the DCNS documents ­could provide an ­intelligence landmine if obtained by India’s neighbours – Pakistan or China.

According to The Australian, the leak, about 22,400 pages, details the ­entire secret combat capability of the six Scorpene-class submarines that French shipbuilder DCNS has designed for the Indian Navy. The leak includes details of the submarine’s underwater sensors, above-water sensors, combat management system, torpedo launch system and specifications, communications system and navigation systems.

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.

According to the report, DCNS has said that such a leak of technical data could not happen with its proposed submarine for Australia. The DCNS also implied that the leak might have occurred at India’s end, rather than from France. DCNS also recently won a contract to design 12 submarines for Australia.

“Uncontrolled technical data is not possible in the Australian Arrangements,” the company was quoted as saying in The Australian. “Multiple and independent controls exist within DCNS to prevent unauthorised access to data and all data movements are encrypted and recorded. In the case of India, where a DCNS design is built by a local company, DCNS is the provider and not the controller of technical data,” it said.

                          Who has done it? India is full of traitors. India was colonized becauselt;br/gt;of traitors, not because of the strenght of the invaders. In our time,lt;br/gt;Hindustan has given too much "playground" to foreign embies.lt;br/gt;Most important is the stupidity of Indian politics to allow former enemieslt;br/gt;to take part in sensitive projects. This, because the governments don'tlt;br/gt;trust their own good friends. India need only swadeshi project. In Akhandlt;br/gt;Hindu Raj all this will come to an end.

                            It holds true for Indians from 1960s..give them a bottle of alcohol and they will let out state secrets..fact cheaper to spy on India than any other country..As usual no action will be taken as no one will have a clue as to who provided this info as counter intelligence doesn't exist in India. Where are those MP s asking useless questions in parliament rather than these..? Form a JPC..That we have been pickpocketed is known from a third counrry..SHAME !!

                                  Who is that private company, name that. May be for some money few employees have done that. Identify the culprit and punish them.

                                    Ex Navy Chief's Nephew Shankaran wrote a mail to chief accused in Navy War room leaks case Abhishek Verma back then that the Chief of Navy will make a strong pitch for scorpene deal.Not very different from Agusta Westland helicopter scam where the Air Force chief is supposed to have recd 70 crore in cash delivered in Delhi via hawala.lt;br/gt;Why is this a surprise ?

                                          Whats new in this ?lt;br/gt;Arvind Kejriwal had held a press conference in May 2012 and described how arms dealer Abhishek Verma (the kingpin) gave 1000 cr 1000 cr to American resident C Edmunds allen to manage.After that Abhishek verma fell out with C Edmunds Allen.lt;br/gt;Abhishek Verma filed a peion in New York court to make C Edmunds allen refund his money.Scorpene deal was a 18,000 crore deal.Abhishek Verma posed as Cong agent in emails for a 4% commission.Ram Jethmalani write to ED to take action.lt;br/gt;There was a man called Shankaran who was nephew of Navy Chief at the time,he wrote a mail to abhishek verma saying Navy chief will be attending the innauguration of a warship and will make a strong pitch to induct scorpene submarines in the Navy.lt;br/gt;These mails were revealed by C Edmunds allen.He wrote to all govt agencies incl ED,CVC,CBI etc.but no action was taken.lt;br/gt;Recently ,the Air Force chief Tyagi was alleged to have taken 70 cr in cash in Delhi via Hawala in Agusta Westland helicopters.Even in that deal Abhishek verma was supposed to get 8% commission on helicopters plus spares.lt;br/gt;In 1991, an arrest linked to militants in Kashmir led to a raid on hawala brokers, revealing evidence of large-scale payments to national politicians.Those accused included L. K. Advani, V. C. Shukla, P. Shiv Shankar, Sharad Yadav, Balram Jakhar, and Madan Lal Khurana.The prosecution that followed was partly prompted by a public interest peion (see Vineet Narain), and yet the court cases of the Hawala scandal eventually all collapsed without convictions. Many were acquitted in 1997 and 1998, partly because the hawala records (including diaries) were judged in court to be inadequate as the main evidence.---lt;br/gt;This is the reality of India.lt;br/gt;Sab a hai par dhanda hai ye.lt;br/gt;go to youtube and search for - (Defense deal commissions - A full blown racket)
