Step 1: Open Indesign and place the "Placed PDF.pdf" file on a page
Step 2: Export the PDF using Adobe PDF Presets (High Quality) select Hyperlinks checkbox on export and save
Step 3: Open exported PDF and put mouse over hyperlink that was present in document from Step 1.

@swapan The links do not show up in the interactive panel. I believe this would be correct based on your statement, IndDesign doesn't treat as a PDF/Text but and Object.... On output the pdf text is flawless so it is most definitely and object, the object gets manipulated and strips the links out on output. Just seems to me there should be a way to allow these links to stay... I don't believe this has worked in other versions in the past.
Not sure whether this features is available on placed object. Indesign treat this as an object/image not an text. Thus not creating any links. Is this feature available earlier? Please do check in Interactive->hyperlink
