India denies report of `secret camps` in TN
Colombo: The Indian High Commission here
denied a report in a Sri Lankan newspaper on Monday that
`terrorists` were being trained at three secret camps in Tamil
Nadu, describing it "entirely erroneous".
The High Commission said in a statement that the
report `Tigers return from India on a destabilisation mission
- SL intelligence` published in `The Island` newspaper today
"The suggestion contained in the news item regarding
the training of terrorists at three secret camps in Tamil
Nadu, India is entirely erroneous and baseless.
"Relevant agencies of the two countries have ongoing
cooperation and no such information has been brought to the
notice of the Government of India," the release said.
The report said that Sri Lankan state intelligence
services have received information that around 150 terrorists
who underwent a special arms training at three secret camps in
Tamil Nadu have returned to Sri Lanka and are hiding in the
north and east to carry out a destabilisation campaign.
It quoted authorities as saying that information had
come to light on interrogation of three former members of the
LTTE accused of hacking to death a member of the Eelam
People`s Democratic Party (EPDP) last month in the eastern
district of Trincomalee.
