Previously a group of Indian hackers called The Lords of Dharmaraja had 
posted documents that were pillaged during the hack of an Indian 
military network. That Pastebin post was removed, but can be viewed via 
Google cache.

More of the story continues to be unveiled such as when Slashdot 

  The memo suggests that, "in exchange for the Indian market presence"
  mobile device manufacturers, including RIM, Nokia, and Apple
  (collectively defined in the document as "RINOA") have agreed to
  provide backdoor access on their devices. The Indian government then
  "utilized backdoors provided by RINOA" to intercept internal emails
  of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a U.S.
  government body with a mandate to monitor, investigate and report to
  Congress on 'the national security implications of the bilateral
  trade and economic relationship' between the U.S. and China.
