India has told the United Kingdom that the ban of LTTE or Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam should continue, Indian media reported.

New Delhi has "shared information" as to why the ban should remain on the group that was responsible for the 30-year long insurgency in Sri Lanka but also the assassination of former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and Sri Lankan President Ranasinghe Premadasa.

The development comes after Britain's Proscribed Organisations Appeal Commission (POAC) in October removed terror tag from the group.

Earlier on Tuesday, in response to a WION question, Acting British High Commissioner to India Jan Thompson on if India has raised the issue said, "Can't comment on individual conversations we had. But we had detailed discussion on a range of issues including around this type of issue with Indian govt in a different format".
The decision of the POAC comes after an appeal was filed in May 2019 by an LTTE front organization that challenged the decision of the UK Secretary of State for Home Affairs. The decision had refused the application to de-proscribe LTTE from the list of Proscribed Organizations under the UK Terrorism Act of 2000.

The UK had listed LTTE as a terror outfit in 2000. The British Home Secretary will make the final decision on its listing.(DNA)
