Chennai, Oct 29 (UNI) Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and Leader of the Opposition J Jayalalithaa today filed a complaint with the city police alleging threat to her life over her stand on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue vis-a-vis the banned LTTE.
AIADMK Legislator and Former Minister D Jayakumar met the Chennai City Police Commissioner R Sekar and handed over a petition along with the copies of the threatening letter and demanded adequate protection to the party leader.
The letter, addressed to Ms Jayalalithaa's Poes Garden Residence, was signed by one Tamil Mainthan, Asian Coordinator for ''Ulaga Thamizhina Padhukappu Kazhagam'' (World Tamils Protection Kazhagam), Bangkok Branch, Thailand.
The Forum has its Headquarters at Robert Street, Quiz House, Canada - 910002.
Copies of the letter were also sent to State Chief Secretary and the Director General of Police.
Mr Jayakumar said the threatening letter had come on the eve of her visit to Pasumpon to pay homage to Freedom Fighter and Thevar Leader Pasumpon Muthuramalingam on his ''Guru Pooja'' and urged the police to provide security to her, besides taking action against Tamil Mainthan.
Accusing her of indulging in misleading propoganda against the LTTE, the letter warned her not to interfere in the LTTE issue which was fighting for the liberation of ethnic Tamils in Sri Lanka.
Threatening her that she would be eliminated in a bomb blast, the letter warned that Ms Jayalalithaa would meet the same fate as that of Former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto (who was killed in suicide bomb attack).
Later, a case was registered at the Teynampet Police Station.
