NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India said on Tuesday it rejected a proposal from Google (GOOGL.O) to roll out its Street View service, which shows panoramic images of roads and other sites.

Junior home minister Hansraj Ahir did not give a reason for the decision - though Indian media reported in October that the defence ministry had raised security concerns.

Google first asked the government if it could roll out the service in India through its Google Maps and Google Earth apps in 2015.
