    NEW DELHI, Jan. 3 (Xinhua) -- India is developing a weapon system in its bid to neutralize enemy satellites operating in low-Earth orbit and polar orbit, the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) said Sunday.

    "India is putting together building blocks of technology that could be used to neutralize enemy satellites," DRDO chief V.K. Saraswat told the media in the southern Indian state of Kerala's capital Thirvananthapuram on the sidelines of the Indian Science Congress.

    "We are working to ensure space security and protect our satellites. At the same time we are also working on how to deny the enemy access to its space assets," he said.

    However, he said that the country's defense scientists have not yet planned any tests of the technology which is only being mulled.
