Group calling itself LTTE denies links in Rajivs killing

The LTTE is represented by Lathan Suntharalingam and Kuruparan Kurusamy. The statement notes that the LTTE believes the pre-planned murder of the former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi, is the result of a conspiracy motivated by the purpose of dismantling the strong relationship between the Indian government and the LTTE.“We ask for an immediate cessation of this allegation of defamation upon the LTTE concerning the murder of Mr. Rajiv Gandhi. As a result, we hope to put an end to the infamy on the LTTE on an international platform and that the International Community would at last end the ban on the LTTE that prevent our People to breathe the air of freedom,” the statement added.
