LTTE Navy not a threat: India

Admiral Arun Prakash, Chief of the Indian Navy said on Friday that the Naval Wing of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) popularly known as Sea Tigers is not a threat to India.

In recent years Sri Lanka had tried to portray an image of the LTTE’s Naval Wing being a threat to India and security in the Indian Ocean.

However, the LTTE has reputed these claims on several occasions. In an interview to the BBC Tamil Service in May 2005, the Political Head of the LTTE Mr. S.P.Tamilselvan said “All our organisation’s structures and efforts are aimed at protecting our people. This is not in any way a threat to any other country in general, particularly India”
