Re: India cites security concerns, blocks Huawei bid to expand theirindian ops

I assume that an Indian intelligence agency would be more concerned about things like hidden remote control or data collection services on the systems.

Exactly. The Chinese version of Cisco's CALEA code with different access methods would be pretty threatening in general. Not saying that they have one, did one, or will... but its a security risk even before you show intent on the part of Huawei. Maybe the Indian gov't is going to request the source to Huawei's code? I remember Germany or Russia requesting it of Microsoft for Windows and Microsoft complied.
