Looking at news video and photo's of Mumbai, I noticed a few 5.56 SIG and 7.62 HK sniper rifles with what appeared to be Zeiss 1.5-6x42 scopes, and at least one S&B, possibly a 3-12x50 PM II. By far the majority of sniper rifles in the news were SVD's with their 4x scopes. Does anyone know more?

The 5.56 Sig you posted about MAY not be a Sig at all but could possibly be Indias "home grown" service rifle ( its name escapes me, though Grrrrr ).  Its has a few elemants of HK and a huge bit of Uncle Mike's Avtomat tossed in for luck.  From what I hear its been a big dud for the Indians and are looking todump it and buy/produce our Hebrew friends new rifle; the TAVOR.  I'll look for further.  
 
Good recce skills on the optics in use.  I havent heard too much about what is being used over on the sub-cont.  They (India) used alot of the Commonwealth kit/gear so Im sure there is still a few Trilux type optics still floating around with them.

No, these were not INSAS, although those were plentiful among the supporting troops.  These were definitely SIG 550's and they were equipped with Zeiss scopes, as I could make out the "Z" on the windage cap.  I saw one S&B on an HK PSG-1.  Another PSG-1 was being carried, but I could not see its scope clearly.

Thats it--'INSAS'.  Wow, Zeiss and S&B in use with the Indians.  I knew they were spending more $$$ to make up for the Pak's getting new gear and cash thanks to Uncle Sugar but I hadnt heard what direction it had taken in small arms and optics until now.  Good work.
 
As far as the Sig 550's Zeiss go...  Sounds like a winning combo (as long as it wasnt that solar cell thingamabob!).  Excellent
