LTTE pockets in south Indian states, says Narayanan

[TamilNet, Sunday, 16 March 2008, 23:21 GMT]
Indian National Security Adviser M.K. Narayanan on Sunday asked the intelligence agencies of the southern states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala to monitor what he alleged as activities of the Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE) stating that both these states had "presence of small pockets of the rebel group," according to reports in Indian media. The Indian intelligence agencies have been systematically releasing reports of increased LTTE activity in Kerala, Tamil Nadu's neighbouring state. Initial reports charged LTTE with using the coastal areas of Kerala since it was not as heavily monitored as the Tamil Nadu coast.

Narayanan further said that the intelligence bureau had cautioned them that "the LTTE units in Sri Lanka might be getting help from their supporters active in the two States."

Heavy security arrangements had been made for his visit to the famous Sri Krishna temple at Ampalappuzhaa in Kerala.

Last week, Mr. Narayanan had reportedly told the visiting leader of the paramilitary group EPDP, Douglas Devananda, who is a cabinet minister in the Rajapaksa government, that "India is expected to play a major role in Sri Lanka's efforts to solve its problems once powers are extensively devolved to the people of the North and East of the country."
