The LTTE has planned to attack a number of targets in Colombo and a group of its cadres has undergone training for this purpose, Intelligence sources said yesterday (23).
The Tigers have during recent weeks committed a number of serious ceasefire violations which include attacks on and killing of Armed Forces and Police personnel. They are now planning to attack a number of targets in Colombo, Defence Advisor to the government and former DIG H. M. G. B. Kotakdeniya told The Island.
He said security and surveillance had been strictly tightened in and around Colombo with orders given to the Forces and Police to exercise utmost vigilance. This was in addition to search operations being conducted in Colombo and the suburbs.
Kotakadeniya requested the public to contact the police in case there was any suspicious movement of strangers in their neigbourhood so that swift action could be taken to pre-empt any acts of violence or sabotage by the LTTE.
