India extends ban on LTTE


India has extended the ban on the LTTE by another two years under the provisions of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram has said.

In a statement he said that in a vide notification dated 14.5.2012, the LTTE was declared to be an ‘Unlawful Association’ for a period of two years, under the provisions of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

The LTTE was first outlawed in India in 1992 under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, a year after a LTTE woman suicide cadre assassinated former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. Since then, the ban has been extended every two years.
