Chennai, July 3 (UNI) The Tamil Nadu Police is conducting a probe to ascertain whether the Sri Lankan national, who was recently arrested in Kerala for possessing a forged passport, has links with any militant organisation, the office of the state Director General of Police said today.

In a release here, the DGP's office referred to a report in a Tamil daily that Udayasankar, a Lankan national arrested by Immigration Authorities at Nedumbassery Airport in Ernakulam on June 23 while attempting to board a flight to Dubai en route to London, had confessed to staying on the outskirts of Chennai city before the Assembly elections.

Investigation revealed that Udaysankar left Colombo Airport after he was cleared by the Immigration authorities there and arrived at the Chennai Airport.
