KOLKATA The Indian government is stepping up defence preparedness in the wake of reports that Indias security was breached as the Pakistani Army downloaded confidential information on helipads from an Indian helicopter that had inadvertently strayed into its territory, an Indian minister said Tuesday. According to the report, Indias security was breached in the sensitive Siachen Glacier-Aksai Chin-Ladakh-Kargil sector as the Pakistani Army downloaded GPS coordinates of all helipads from the Indian chopper that strayed into Azad Kashmir Sunday. 'We are taking the safeguards for the nations protection. We are improving our preparedness, Minister of State for Defence MM Pallam Raju told reporters here Tuesday. 'We are taking every precaution to maintain confidentiality of what is important. At the same time we are also stepping up our defence preparedness, said Raju, here to launch the countrys second indigenous Anti-Submarine Warfare corvette 'Kadmat built by the Garden Reach Ship Builders & Engineers Ltd. After a few hours the minister altered his statement, saying there was no sensitive information on board the military helicopter that strayed into Pakistan. There is no secret information in any helicopter. It is regular information that is needed for any machine. So I do not think that is the case, Pallam Raju said. Asked if this Pakistani gesture will improve relations between the two countries, the minister said: This is an isolated incident. Meanwhile, India had sought help from the Unites States to secure the release of armys Cheetah helicopter after it strayed into Azad Kashmir recently, Indian media reported quoting sources. Sources said a senior Indian official called up his counterpart in the US to ensure the release of the chopper that had entered in Azad Kashmir by mistake. The US official, in turn, spoke with senior officials in Pakistan Army to secure safe release of the helicopter. The director general military operations also spoke over the hotline, but American pressure helped avert what could have become a big crisis.
