Indian Army not kept on alert :

No substance in Fonseka’s story

According to a PTI report headlined ‘Fonseka’s claim without substance- India’ India dismissed former Chief of Defence Staff Sarath Fonseka’s claim that its troops were put on alert at the instance of President Mahinda Rajapaksa following fears of a coup.

Strongly refuting Fonseka’s claim, External Affairs Minister of State Shashi Tharoor said there was “no substance to the story.” “We should be a little wary of making too much of these kinds of speculations,” he said in Thiruvananthapuram.

The External Affairs Ministry made it very clear that the Indian Army was never placed on alert. “There is no substance to the story. The government has officially informed the public that the Indian Army has not been placed on alert”.
