The Tamil Nadu government has provided security for the Sri Lankan Deputy High Commission in Chennai which has come under threat from pro-LTTE elements and various other groups including Tamil political parties opposing the Sri Lankan government.
In the latest threat a Tamil Nadu political party has demanded that the Sri Lankan Deputy High Commission in Chennai be closed over alleged attacks on Indian fishermen by the Sri Lankan navy. The Sri Lankan Navy has however vehemently denied the charges.
