A court in Ramanathapuram, Tamil Nadu on Saturday sentenced four supporters of the banned Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) to varied jail terms for procuring weapons and trying to smuggle them to Sri Lanka.

District court judge A Kayalvizhi awarded the jail term to Krishna Kumar, Subhashkaran, Rajendran and Sasikumar.

While Krishna Kumar and Subhashkaran were each sentenced to 10 years imprisonment, Rajendran and Sasikumar got three years and six months jail terms respectively.

The two were fined Rs 4,000 and Rs 1,000.

All the four, arrested near Rameswaram in 2014, had landed on Indian shores earlier, the prosecution said.

They were accused of getting cyanide capsules and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) meant to be supplied to LTTE in the island nation and help revive the organisation.(PTI)

    Contrary to the continuous belief among the Sinhalese, no mainstream Jaffna Hindu Tamil has ever supported the LTTE in any shape or form.The emergence of the Indian trained LTTE was a curse to the decent Tamils and it’s supporters are all total outsiders with some having strong connection to the Tamil Catholic establishment.Tamils have major political issues that warrant comprehensive solution,but the LTTE trying to make a comeback should be thwarted at the outset.In this respect Sri Lankan Armed forces can expect unconditional support from the Jaffna Hindu Tamils.

    Great example!!! Our government is trying to white wash the LTTE while others are jailing them. Tiger is breathing again! We should be mindful and use our intelligence services to stop it before another outbreak

    What a fun, LTTE members are arrested in Tamil Nadu, while active LTTE organizer is appointed OPPOSITION LEADER in SRI LANKA.

    You fool,calling the Tamil opposition leader as a LTTE man is analogous to calling MR as a JVP man simply because both belong to the same race.
