That'd be an INSAS. A much modified AK chambered in 5.56. Rumoured that some of 'em have a whole bunch of functioning issues.

That the world famous Galilibabba. :D

Known for being a complete POS, like most of the software I've tested from Bengal. :(

It looks a lot like an SLR106cr (http://www.arsenalinc.com/slr106cr.htm) with a fixed stock, muzzle brake, and a tech sight. How did they screw that up?

How did they screw that up?

They took the best ideas from the AKM, Galil, FAL and then...they let the engineers design it from the bottom up. Instead of taking a proven design and making tweaks.

Having been to India, I've seen them deployed in the field. Interesting rifles for sure. It's a home brewed design, as mentioned it's a relative of the AK with some FAL influences (still issued to Indian forces).
