India prepares to face nuclear attacks, plans underground bunkers in major cities: Report

http://www.indiatvnews.com/news/india-india-prepares-to-face-nuclear-attacks-plans-underground-bunkers-in-major-cities-for-protection-against-wmds-352945See more… India is reportedly planning to create underground control rooms in major Indian cities that could secure data and communication against an attack using Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) such as nuclear, chemical and biological.

According to a report in ‘Sputnik’, Delhi Police has identified two locations in India’s national capital for the first phase of the initiative.

Quoting its sources in Delhi Police, the report says that senior officials and concerned departments are in the process of preparing the initial plan for setting up an underground data control room, which will be submitted for government approval soon.

“A recently held security review meeting discussed the necessity of secure data communication networks center. The idea is at an initial stage. We are preparing a detailed report then we would be able to share details only at a later stage,” a senior Delhi Police official was quoted as saying by ‘Sputnik’.

The report adds that the underground facility would be based on India’s indigenously developed ‘Reinforced Hardened Shelter’.

This system was developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) last year for protection of Indian Armed Forces from nuclear, chemical and biological attacks.

The underground facility would be capable of withstanding any radiation or thermal attack for up to seven days.

 

India could launch ‘preemptive’ nuclear strike against Pakistan if threatened, says expert

http://www.pakistantoday.com.pk/2017/03/22/india-could-launch-preemptive-nuclear-strike-against-pakistan-if-threatened-says-expert/Via pakistantoday.com.pk India could launch a preemptive first strike against Pakistan if it feared a nuclear attack was imminent, reversing its well-known no-first-use policy, according to a leading nuclear strategist. This first strike, however, will not be aimed at urban centres and conventional targets but against Islamabad’s nuclear arsenal. The strategic assessment is in clear contrast to New Delhi’s ‘no-first strike’ policy of 2003. India would launch “a full ‘comprehensive counterforce strike’ that attempts to completely disarm Pakistan of its nuclear weapons,” Dr Narang said.

This first strike, however, will not be aimed at urban centres and conventional targets but against Islamabad’s nuclear arsenal. The strategic assessment is in clear contrast to New Delhi’s ‘no-first strike’ policy of 2003.

India would launch “a full ‘comprehensive counterforce strike’ that attempts to completely disarm Pakistan of its nuclear weapons,” Dr Narang said.

He explained that policy-makers in New Delhi decided to go for the nuclear option to ensure that “India does not have to engage in iterative tit-for-tat exchanges and expose its own cities to nuclear destruction”.

New Delhi declared the ‘no-first strike’ policy, undertaking not to start a nuclear war in a neighbourhood packed with nuclear actors such as China and Pakistan.

Narang said he was not basing the assessment on fringe extreme voices such as those of Bharat Karnad or retired Indian Army officers frustrated by the lack of resolve they believe their government had shown in multiple provocations.
