Snowden case's Indian connection

US spying whistle-blower is just one of thousands of foreigners who travel to South Asian nation to learn IT skills.

    The man who prompted the changes to the US spying programme, Edward Snowden, took a crash course in information technology in India, including a so-called ethical hacking class.

    That might have helped him get a job as a contractor with the National Security Agency.

    Snowden is just one of the thousands of foreigners who have travelled to India to take these courses.
