The Indian government has extended by five years the ban imposed on LTTE, a terror group that was behind the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi and was decimated by the Sri Lanka military in 2009.

India had banned Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) after the assassination of Gandhi in 1991.

The government, under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, has proscribed the LTTE as an ‘Unlawful Association’, a Home Ministry statement said.

“The declaration of LTTE as an ‘Unlawful Association’ has been extended for a further period of five years with effect from May 14, 2014,” it said.

LTTE, which came up in 1976, was based in northern Sri Lanka and fought for creation of an independent Tamil state in the north and east of that country. It was decimated by the Sri Lankan military in 2009.

Thousands of people were killed during the bloody movement launched by LTTE under the leadership of Velupillai Prabhakaran, who was also killed in the fight with the Sri Lankan Army in 2009.

It had carried out the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in 1991 and Sri Lanka’s President Ranasinghe Premadasa in 1993. (PTI)

    Awesome news Kudos to the central govt for having the guts to extend the ban. And not worrying about jaya and karu.
