Police deny LTTE infiltration claims

The police today denied reports that some 150 LTTE cadres have infiltrated the north and east from Tamil Nadu.

When contacted by the Colombo Gazette, police spokesman S.P Ajith Rohana said that the police did not have any information of such infiltration and felt the report was a “bogus” news item.

Meanwhile the Indian High Commission in Colombo also denied the news report.

‘The suggestion contained in the news item regarding the training of terrorists at three secret camps in Tamil Nadu, India is entirely erroneous and baseless,” the High Commission said.

It said that relevant agencies of the two countries have ongoing cooperation and no such information has been brought to the notice of the Government of India.

About 150 terrorists, trained in India, have landed in Sri Lankan shores in the garb of fishermen to destabilise the country, a local newspaper reported on Monday quoting Sri Lankan state intelligence.

The Tamil Nadu Police meanwhile on Monday termed as “totally baseless” the Sri Lankan newspaper item on the existence of three LTTE camps in the state which reportedly trained 150 cadres of the banned outfit.

“There are no such training camps in Tamil Nadu. Some time back a similar report surfaced in Sri Lanka and later it was retracted by seeking to put the blame falsely on the Indian media,” DGP K Ramanujam said in a statement.

He said the news item stated that over 150 LTTE cadres underwent special arms training in three secret camps in Tamil Nadu and then returned to Sri Lanka disguised as fishermen to carry out a destabilisation campaign.

Ramanujam said militant and extremist organisations remain banned in the state, while a strict vigil is maintained to curb overt and covert activities.

“Any activist identified is lodged in a special camp. There is therefore no question of any training camps functioning or being allowed to function in Tamil Nadu,” he added. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. You should not shock to hear that LTTE as a torrerist group because they are torrerist. I want to say that you are covered with a myth. They are not reprsentatives off tamil people. LTTE is destroying all young life and young tamil generation by doing this war. They force children to join this war(I have practical experiences). All people suffer not because of government but of LLTE. Because of this torrerist, lost so many valuable tamil and sinhala life. Prebakaran only think about his power. Can you guarante if prebakaran win this he won,t use his wepons to dominate people. At north east more than 300 000 sinhala and muslim people were displaced and their lands are occupied by LTTE. They have killed so many innocent sinhala and muslim people. Onnce near welikanda, LTTE killed all villagers in a sinhal village. They have killed prengant women and a 2 months child not even shooting but using axes(CUTING). More than 10 000 sinhala people have killed by LTTE. They do not want anything else but ruling power of north.(They already lost east) LTTEs first attack was dore appa one great tamil leader. They not only killed sinhala leaders but so many tamil leaders too. They killed any person who talk against them. People in north fear to talk aginst LTTE if they do so their families and life will go to heven as standing for truth. LTTE and their suppoters lie whloe world. They took advantages of some misleading politicain to gain their power.It doesn’t mean all them are same. Solution for this problem is finsh all torrerist and give political solution to tamil people(not to LTTE). I can remember once they kill about 60 buddhist monks at aranthalawa while traveling on a bus. I am dissapointing to mention them as rebels they are truely torrerist,creatures. LTTE must wipe out from sri lanka. All foreign nation should help sri lankan army to finish this war. Any tamil people can go any where of country but not sinhala and muslim people. They can even set foot northen people. LTTE killed so many sinhala people while occuping norhern area.Still they are doing so by bomb blasting at other areas of the country. Tamil people at north suffer o poverty because of LTTE as they don’t let goverment to devolop this areas. If they let they surely know not a single people stay with them. what they want is to let people to suffer and take advantage to join torrerist.All must get together to wipe out LTTE and let all inocent tamil people to live free.Proud to be a sri lankan.Yours,Niranjan,(Totaly Sri lankan)
