Maoist leader’s visit: Vigilance up in Kerala borders

Posted by Indian Vanguard on September 19, 2007


Thiruvananthapuram, Sept. 19 (PTI): The Kerala Police has tightened vigil along the Kerala-Tamil Nadu borders following reports that Maoist leader Sundaramurthy from the neighbouring state visited Idukki district in Kerala before his arrest in July last.

Sundaramurthy, who was arrested by the Tamil Nadu Police, was learnt to have stayed in Nedumkandam, Santhanpara and Parathode, Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan told the Kerala Assembly today.

He said a native of Vavunia in Sri Lanka, identified as Sadaratinam, was also held from Nedumkandam in Idukki district last month for not carrying required travel documents.

Considering reports of the visit of TN Maoists, having links with Sri Lankan terrorist groups, to Idukki district, police have been asked to enhance vigil on the state borders, the minister said in a reply.

Security has also been stepped up across the state, based on the central intelligence alert in the wake of the recent Hyderabad blasts, he said.

Police have been instructed to closely monitor foreigners visiting the state in general and Pakistan citizens in particular.

Look out circulars have been issued to airports and sea ports and police special branch has been asked to strictly check hotels where foreigners are staying, he said.
