Madurai: The number of Sri Lankan Tamil refugees coming from there to Tamil Nadu has declined drastically, a top police official said Thursday.

"The number has come down drastically. Now only one or two are coming," DGP Lethika Saran said.

On reports of movement of Maoists in Kodaikanal, Dindigul and Theni districts, she said police were constantly receiving intelligence inputs and keeping a close vigil on infiltration of Maoists into the state.

So far there is nothing to worry about Maoists in Tamil Nadu," she said.

Referring to the murders of some political functionaries in the state over the past few weeks, she said most were due to personal disputes or family feud.

She said tight security would be provided to Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin and AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa during their separate visits to Pasumpon district to pay homage to freedom fighter Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar on October 30.

After reviewing security arrangements for the 'Thevar Jayanthi' celebrations, she said adequate police personnel would be deployed at all important and sensitive sites. Police will not permit people to travel in open vehicles and on top of buses.

Stones were thrown at Jayalalithaa when she visited the 'Thevar Samathi' (memorial) in 2008.

She said all important leaders would be provided security and routes for the leaders had also been drawn up.

Expressing concern over increasing cyber crime cases, she said a Crime Branch-CID SP would be deployed in important cities. A separate cyber crime unit would be created at Tiruchirappalli, Madurai and Coimbatore.

To a question, she said there was a proposal to grade stations in the state as light, medium, and heavy depending on the workload, crime and other sensitive issues. The Uniformed Services Recruitment Board will be asked to deploy police according to the grading of the station. Besides, there was a plan to fill all the vacancies, she added.
