AS PER MEDIA ALL PEOPLE ARE HIDING IN KERALA
THIS IS A IDEA TO INCREASE POLICE AND ARMY PRESENCE IN THE STATE..... OR TO MAKE A POLICE STATE
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala government on Tuesday said it was verifying reports that the wife of LTTE Chief Parabhakarn had taken shelter in the state following escalation of fighting between Tamil tigers and Sri Lankan Army in the island nation.
"Government did not have any official information about the whereabouts of Prabhakaran and his family and it is looking into the reports in this regard", State Home Minister Kodiyari Balakrishnan told reporters in the state capital on Tuesday.
However, police stations in coastal areas have been alerted as a precautionary measure, Balakrishnan said. The government has decided to set up eight more police stations in the coastal areas to intensify surveillance, he said.
"The new police stations would start functioning within one month", he said. These police stations would be equipped with modern gadgets and boats to carry out sea patrolling.
The movements of LTTE cadre, if any, in the state also would be monitored, he said.
On the increase in the number of inter-state migrant workers in Kerala, he said the government was in the process of collecting details of the labourers. Traders from other states have also been asked to maintain records about the staff, if they were from other states, he added.
