A leaked Indian government document indicated that Chinese submarines have ventured into the Indian Ocean region frequently and have posed “a grave danger to India’s security interest.”
The document, originated from the Indian Defense Ministry, is called “Indian Navy: Perceived Threats to Subsurface Deterrent Capability and Preparedness,” and was obtained by the newspaper Hindustan Times.
The document cites subsurface data shared by the U.S. and India that could identify at least 22 contacts with underwater vessels suspected to be Chinese attack submarines.
