New Delhi, Sep 21: Former DRDO scientist K Santhanam slammed at National Security Adviser M K Narayanan on Monday, Sep 21.
He said that NSA was "barking up the wrong tree" by contending he was not privy to test measurements and information on Pokhran II tests.
"Narayanan is barking up the wrong tree," he said at an interaction with journalists at the Indian Women Press Corp here.
Terming the remarks by the NSA as "unnecessary", he also demanded that an independent panel probe the success of the Pokhran tests.
Earlier, Narayanan has termed Santhanam's claims about Pokhran-II as "horrific" and asserted that India has thermonuclear capabilities which have been verified by AEC researchers.
