Amid India-China border Standoff, China Snooping on Indian Leaders Including PM, President

Vastavam web: Amid the ongoing India-China border face-off along LAC, the Chinese Communist Party is keeping an eye over 10,000 Indian individuals and organisations in its global database of “foreign targets,” an investigative report by the Indian Express revealed. President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Modi, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Union ministers like Rajnath Singh and Nirmala Sitharaman and at least 15 former Chiefs of the Army, Navy and Air Force were some of the prominent names which were under the scanner.

Indian agencies flagged how common Indians unknowingly were contributing to the data bank of Chinese companies, which in turn was being shared with Chinese Communist Party and agencies.” Meanwhile, this comes at a time when India and China have been locked in a tense standoff in multiple areas along the Line of Actual Control(LAC) in eastern Ladakh since four months.
