The Tamil Nadu police on Wednesday refuted media reports about possible intrusion of Liberation Tigers of the Tamil Eelam cadres in the state following the discovery of some boats with bullet marks along the Rameswaram coast recently.
The superintendent of police, Ramanathapuram said 'a thorough investigation' had revealed that six boats had been recently washed ashore, of which three had bullet marks.
"A thorough investigation conducted along with the sister agencies revealed that the boats had apparently drifted from Sri Lanka [Images] due to the recent cyclone. They were not being used for any activity subversive to the nation's security, as reported in certain sections of the media," he said in a statement in Chennai.
