The wide observation measures adopted by the Indian Navy and the shore Guard in the South Indian waters following the new Mumbai incidents have helped the Lankan Navy in fast down the LTTE manoeuvres in the South Indian seas, Navy Spokesman, Commander Karunaratne said. Commenting on the present state of the safety proceedings in the seas in the North, Cmdr. Karunaratne told the Sunday viewer that the Indian Navy and the Coast Guard were continually in touch with Lankan Navy.
"The notable hazard for India from the Southern area would be from the LTTE. Therefore, the state is bound to increase its surveillances in the South Indian waters.
The Lankan Navy has also stepped up its observation following the winning earth attack that have been accepted out in Wanni by the Security Forces.
Navy has neutralised the Sea Tigers to a greater degree and with the Indian Navy's stringent events the 'outfit' would find it hard to arrive at the South Indian coastal areas," Cmdr. Karunaratne pointed out.
