India bolsters security along Palk Strait, Gulf of Mannar

RAMESWARAM: Security along the Palk Straits and Gulf of Mannar has been further strengthened in view of the ongoing battle between the Sri Lankan Army and the LTTE, a top Indian naval official said yesterday.

Indian Naval Commander S R Shinde said the step would also ensure that there was no infiltration of militants into Indian territory.

He said the radars monitoring movement of boats would be shifted from Seeniappa Durgah here to Kudankulam as fishermen inadvertently cross the international maritime boundary line (IMBL).

Shinde said he did not expect refugees to come to India as those affected would move only within their territory to safer places. “The Tamils may not opt to cross to India,” he said.

Indian Coast Guard Area Commander Janarthanan said that a fully equipped mechanised patrolling vessel along with a hovercraft and two helicopters would be assigned for security.
