New Delhi/Chennai. NIA on Friday carried out a series of raids across Tamil Nadu (TN) in an LTTE inspired arms seizure case.

Raids were conducted by the NIA teams at the premises belonging to suspects in Chennai, Trichy, Coimbatore, Sivaganga and Tenkasi. Extensive searches by the agency led to the seizure of one laptop, 7 mobiles, 8 SIM/memory cards and 4 pen drives, along with incriminating documents and books related to the LTTE terror organisation and its self-styled slain supremo, Prabhakaran.

The case was originally registered by TN Police following the apprehension of two men, identified as Naveen Chakravorty and Sanjay Prakash, during vehicle checking at Puliyampatti division, Salem, on 19th May 2022. They were arrested after being found in possession of two Pistols, ammunition, gun powder etc.

Investigations revealed that the duo was inspired by the LTTE, a proscribed terrorist organisation. They wanted to establish an outfit similar to the LTTE and wage an armed struggle in Tamil Nadu. Subsequently, one more accused person, namely Kabilar @ Kabilan, was also arrested in this case.

The case was taken over by the NIA on 25th July 2022 and investigations are continuing.
