India extends LTTE ban

14 May 2010 11:09 am - 7     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Indian government today extended the ban on the LTTE by another two years following intelligence reports that remnants of the Sri Lankan Tamil terror outfit were trying to re-group in Tamil Nadu.

According to a notification issued by the Indian Union Home Ministry, even though LTTE has been "decimated in Sri Lanka, recent reports reveal that remnant LTTE cadres and leaders are regrouping in Tamil Nadu."

The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam has been banned since 1992 under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

The outfit which was espousing the cause of a separate Tamil Eelam was vanquished by the Sri Lankan military in May last year.

The notification said the possibility of its remnant cadres using India and especially Tamil Nadu as a rear base for their re-grouping activities cannot be ruled out.

It also said the possibility of their entering in the guise of Tamil refugees also cannot be ruled out. (PTI)

    Why ban for two years and not indefinitely? India has to keep LTTE alive otherwise there is no hold in Lanka for them; can't dictate anything to Lanka unless LTTE is kept alive.

    when there is injustice to any person/group first they will try to sort matters legally but when in legal processes are used to stop this legal right then there is only one way.
