After the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology, the State capital is getting another training institute of national importance.

The state police is setting up an intelligence training centre at the Police Training College here in association with the Intelligence Bureau (IB). The institution will be named, ‘South Zone Intelligence Training Institute’.

While the administration of the training centre will be with the state police, training will be imparted by officials from vthe Central Intelligence Bureau.

The setting up of the intelligence training centre assumes significance in wake of the suspected presence of terrorist activists in the state.

The recent arrest of a Kashmiri native with suspected links with Hizbul Mujahideen from Kumily and a Maoist leader from Angamali are instances of this.

Besides police officials from the state, police officials from the neighbouring states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and the union territory of Lakshadweep would also be provided training at the centre.

Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan will inaugurate the training centre on Monday. IB Director P.C. Haldar will preside over the function.
