I think what Sathya is telling is "Defect gap" not the defect leakage. Defect leakage: When a defect is left undetected during integration testing and was found later during System testing is Defect leakage. We will say a defect was leaked in integration testing. defect can be leaked from System testing to UAT.

Defect leakage occurs at the Customer or the End user side after the application delivery. After the release of the application to the client, if the end user gets any type of defects by using that application then it is called as Defect leakage. This Defect Leakage is also called as Bug Leak.
