I quote from four other sources

Response to Curiouser and curiouser

Kraus Maffei, who designed Germany's Leopard 2 tank, helped to design the Arjun MBT. Consequently, the Arjun is very similar to the Leopard 2.

Pakistan defence
Arjun is a variant of German Leopard II designed by Krauss Maffei!

Everything I've read indicates that the Arjun (Mk. I) MBT is based on relatively solid and well known, previously existing technology. It was designed with assistance from Krauss Maffei, who had also previously helped design the earlier Leopard 2

Despite DRDO's attempts at indigenization, the Arjun relied heavily on foreign components and technology. DRDO received major design assistance from Krauss Maffei, the developer of the German Leopard 2 tank, and several other German firms. As a result, Arjun's design is very similar to that of Leopard 2A4 tank.

These are not several sources merely regurgitating the same possibly wrong rumour!
What more do you need?
